We Return to Stones IX
Acrylic ink, acrylic paint, and oil paint on cotton canvas | 2020
Inspired by the use of stones as metaphors and symbols in the writing of Norwegian poet Tor Ulven, this series of abstract paintings, We Return to Stones, continues Styrkestad Haukaas’ exploration of our deep connection to the natural world. Using both earth and flesh tones, she intuitively creates organic, geodic shapes reminiscent of brain scans and the crevices of the human body to convey that we are truly part of, not separate from, nature.

“My subject matter is nature influenced by subjective memories. I love thinking about how humans make deep, personal relations with nature - places, mountains, lakes, on earth and in space.”
