La Artista Marit Geraldine Bostad (1976) trabaja y vive en Horten, Noruega.

Su estudio se encuentra en una antigua base naval, donde encuentra la mayor parte de su trabajo inspirado en medio de una gran naturaleza y edificios históricos.

Marit Geraldine es Directora de Arte tiene mas de 10 años de experiencia en distintos proyectos visuales dentro del mundo del cine y la ilustración.

Además del trabajo comercial al que se dedicaba nunca dio de lado la pintura – participando en proyectos de arte a pequeña escala.

En 2010 dejó el campo de dirección de arte para siempre. Un cambio que nunca ha lamentado.”Trabajando con mis manos siento que el material es esencial para mí. Después de tantos años en la dirección de arte el mundo real se hizo distante y frío. Simplemente tuve que deshacerme de todos los filtros y shortcommands, y así lo hice “.

“Me exijo ser fiel a mí misma, me atrevo a tener una mente abierta. Atreverme a buscar contrastes y significados interesantes. Atrévete a creer en mis instintos. El resumen es lo que queda cuando uno se deshace de las pertenencias innecesarias. Lo que sucede a continuación, es realmente fascinante”.

The artist Marit Geraldine Bostad (1976) works and lives in Horten in Vestfold County, Norway. Her studio is at an old naval base, where she finds most of her workinspiration in the middle of great nature and historical buildings.

Marit Geraldine is originally an Art Director, with 10 years of visual projects within film, illustration and consept building in Oslo.

Besides the commercial work she has always been painting – taking part in small scale art projects. In 2010 she left the art direction field for good. A change she has never regretted.

 ”To work with my hands and feel the material is essential to me. I got lost in my computer, the real world became distant, cold. I simply had to get rid of all the filters and shortcommands, and so I did”.

 ”When I paint I go into another place. Not by trying, just by being. Interaction with my tools, my colours, the white canvas that is beeing covered, layers by layers. More and more hidden. When I am in that state – finding a connection with the artwork, piece by piece – I have learned by experience, that someone else also will connect to it. Some might not see the painting, but others can´t forget the meeting.

 My job is to search for, to know when I am reaching that point. And it demands from me that I am true to myself, dare to be open minded. Dare to search for interresting contrasts and meanings. Dare to believe in my instincts. The Abstract is what is left when you peel of the unnecessary belongings. What happens next, is truly fascinating. So many unique pair of eyes. So many stories. The artist is almost forgotten, and that is to me a true meeting.
