YNGVE HENRIKSEN

I constantly try to expand my horizon, both in the visual arts, and in painting as a language. It is a question of surprise: to meet myself and the nature that surrounds me. To have the courage to look back, and at the same time face forward. To integrate all this at the same time; the meeting between the inner and the outer, physical landscape that surrounds me, and to see the things I know well in a new way, from the outside. This is where the images materialize, as a symbiosis between lived life and the Lofoten landscape that has always created a contour around my life. Simultaneously rough and tender.

That, and the light, the surprising, blue light that flows in, filling the polar night.

This is what my pictures are all about.
