Hanne Borchgrevink (born 1951, Norway) is one of Norway’s leading painters and printmakers. Over time, she has minimized her motivic range, concentrating on a set of basic shapes revolved around the silhouette of a house or a landscape. Working with woodcuts in the intersection of abstraction and figuration, she is exploring the boundaries, and experimenting with the viewer’s perception of colors and forms.

Lars Lerin (born 1954, Sweden) is considered one of the most outstanding watercolour painters in the world. He is renowned for his unique technique and is represented in collections and exhibitions in the Nordic countries, Europe, and the USA. Lerin has developed his own method of printmaking where he combines the techniques of etching and watercolour, creating ethereal images that seemingly illuminates from the inside in a magical way. Nature has always been of pivotal importance in Lerin’s work. But his artworks also reveal scenes from our own lives conjuring up a sense of loneliness and alienation. The common denominator in all of them is that they touch something deep inside of us with their beautiful, distinctive motifs, characterized by melancholia and wistfulness, but also hope and warmth.

Annette Kierulf (born 1964, Norway) is an artist based in Bøvågen and Bergen, who works mainly with woodcut. She uses visual art as a means of exploring issues on ecology, place and conjunctions between landscape and human emotion. Being outdoors observing nature, from entire landscapes to individual details such as flowers and animals, has a strong place in her work, important both as a motif, a source of inspiration and as symbols. Ideas about the landscape and nature have become increasingly charged, as we can no longer ignore the reality of climate change.

Tore Hansen (born 1949, Norway) is renowned for his everyday existential observations of human beings and our relationship to nature. His simplified and naive forms of forests, trees, moose and people are transformed into existential human metaphors – often accompanied by bittersweet humor. Hansen’s preferred graphical technique is woodcut.

Ellen Karin Mæhlum (born 1957, Norway) is a visual artist and printmaker based in Oslo. Educated at the National Academy of Fine Art in Bergen (KHiB), Oslo (KHiO), and at the Royal University College of Fine Arts in Stockholm (KKH). She has participated in a number of exhibitions nationally and internationally. Her work has been acquired by several public collections, including the National Gallery in Oslo and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Oslo. She often works in series with a common theme, format and graphic technique The various series are rooted in Mæhlum's focus on changes in nature and an experimental approach to the technical possibilities of graphics.
