2017: MARI KOLBEINSON : PORTFOLIO

Mari Kolbeinson (b.1989) is a Norwegian artist based between London and Stavanger, Norway. Her work revolves around painting, with focus on its structural elements, the tension between its surface/support, and how these cohere and unfold in the 3dimensional realm. This is an ongoing process expressed through installations, videos, oil on canvas and partly performative works. Kolbeinson completed the MFA at Bergen Academy of Art and Design 2015, and BA (hons) at Kingston University, London. Exhibitions include at Castor Projects, London (solo) Stavanger Kunsthall (solo), Studio 17 ( Solo), ’New Norwegian Abstraction’ at Stavanger Kunstmuseum and Wells art contemporary at ‘Bishops Palace’, Wells. Mari Kolbeinson is currently in residency at AIR FUTURA in the frame of a collaboration with Rogaland Kunstsenter​ / Frida Hansen Hus in Stavanger, Norway.
