Sif Norskov’s paintings, fictional landscapes and scenes depict near recognisable objects and natural forms that move between representation and abstraction. The movement within the works between figurative objects and abstract gestures or marks is an engagement with both the physicality, tactility and language of painting. By using a combination of materials including matte and glossy paints, as well as thin and thick textures, the materiality of paint itself moves beyond merely being a tool and becomes an active aesthetic and physical element. 

 

Norskov (b.1992) graduated from the Royal College of Art (2017) and lives and works in London.
