GRETHE IRENE EINARSEN
After lengthy years of study among the seven hills of Bergen, this Narvik lass eventually found her way home to natural horizons marked by proper mountains.
She loves outings in Ofoten’s alpine surroundings – on cross-country skis. The photos demonstrate that she is concerned with close relationships. Family, friends, pets. She works digitally for the most part, but she has managed to publish her own facebook on paper!
Grethe Irene Einarsen creates photo-based images and installations. Her works can be placed on the threshold between documentary art and staged theatrical art. The North-Norwegian landscape is a frequent leitmotiv in her images. Human alienation is a recurrent theme. She is concerned with the complexity of the individual, and she allows the banal and ordinary to go hand in hand with issues of universal, existential scope.
From her window one storey above her studio at Frydenlund in Narvik, Grethe Irene Einarsen can enjoy a panorama of the mountains surrounding her home town.
