Snøfrid Hunsbedt Eiene

In the Name of the Rose

Few symbols are more used in art history, religion, politics and myths than the rose. It´s therefore a challenge ArtLego artist Snøfrid Hunsbedt Eiene has taken upon herself, making the motive her own, giving it new possible ways to be interpreted.

In her new exhibition Folding’s: Roses at Bryne Art Society, Eiene reveals breath-taking works. With her astonishing skills in drawing, she plays with light and shadow, revealing close ups of flowers as if seen through a magnifier glass. Drawing the roses many times as big as they are in nature, her works echo Georgia O´Keeffe´s words about her paintings: “Nobody sees a flower – really – it is so small it takes time – we haven’t time – and to see takes time, like to have a friend takes time.”

Now Eiene´s roses are really worth spending time and contemplating upon, just like O’Keeffe’s was. So if you´re in the neighbourhood, why not spend some minutes or even hours threating yourself with one of the most beautiful exhibitions you will watch this year?

And if you don´t have time, view her wonderful drawings at ArtLego
