Exclusively created for The Ode To

The series Undercurrents is painted on MDF boards and we fell for the vivid brushstrokes paired with the raw wood surface. The artwork doesn't need framing and we love the easy and minimalist hanging. Each artwork is made in one "take" reflecting a particular impulse and feeling at that specific time.

The empty space in the painting is inspired by Eastern philosophy on emptiness/fullness – where emptiness is regarded as a positive force. "Emptiness can be the peaceful silence where we rest, it can be the unsaid in a conversation, it can be the invisible breath causing life etc. In other words, “emptiness” is not empty, but full, and the empty forms in my pieces are thus as important as the painted forms."

What makes Sissel Johansen special: she has a Ph.D. in psychology and a graduate from The Interdisciplinary Art School in Oslo and manages to keep these two worlds together. The theme “Undercurrents” refers to both how the subconscious is affecting people´s thoughts, feelings and behavior, but also how people sometimes try to suppress certain thoughts or feelings.

The nitty gritty: It's signed by the artist with pencil on the front. The back has a metal string attached to it that can be used for wall mounting. Please note that all handmade objects may have charming little imperfections and colour variations.
