"Bente Vold Klausen: New Work"
2008-09-22 until 2008-11-01
USA United States of America
Norwegian fiber artist Bente Vold Klausen creates work with imagery that reflects contemporary society and her culture. Her new work is inspired by problems concerning the environment including climate changes and threats to the rainforests and the people living in them. One of her favorite Norwegian authors, Gert Nygaardshaug, writes about this theme, and the mood and temper in his books also inspired her new works. She uses various fiber art techniques such as dying, printing and painting along with her signature stitching patterns to produce texture, movement and three-dimensional effects.
Bente Vold Klausen has worked with textiles for more than 30 years. She is the initiator and editor of the Scandinavian Quilt magazine Quiltemagasinet. Her work is located in the collections of the American Craft Museum in New York; Moss Art Collection in Norway; and the Fredrikstad Art Collection in Norway. She exhibits her work throughout Europe, Canada, and the United States.
