About the Artist
Norwegian painter Bente Halvorsen uses art as a healing and educational vessel. Her recent works burst with vibrant tones primarily using acrylic and oil, mirroring the alluring and natural color patterns experienced in sky-scapes and landscapes. Her inspiration to depict nature invites a more in-depth conversation about each unique visual delivered through her large scale canvases tackling environmental, social, and reflective themes.
“Straw At Sunset”, Oil on Linen Canvas, 47.2” x 31.5”
Halvorsen matches her highly skilled background as an artist, with her knowledge and connection to the relaxing effects paintings can bring forth. Taking on the role as a painting instructor, she is both playful and inspirational with her work. “Surrounded by Light,” and ” Straw at Sunset,” are a soothing display of the spatial elements that transpire as the dividing points on each canvas—bringing forth vastness, and grandiosity. Halvorsen’s efforts in promoting environmental preservation by recycling materials for her works, push her forward like a ray of sunshine in the fine arts.
