Bjørnar Aaslund is an abstract painter who likes to define his work as memories of non-existent landscapes.
Through the destruction of the subject where composition and perspective are broken down into rhythms, surfaces and brush strokes, Aaslund focuses on the intuitive reading of nature and his own surroundings.
By using repetitions, different directions in brush strokes as well as different depth effects, he creates abstract landscapes that alternate between something recognisable and at the same time completely unknown.
Always working from memory, Aaslund combines what he has seen with subjective experiences and moods, approaching different landscapes in an abstract language, with layer upon layer of color, some transparent, others opaque, forming the substance of the paintings.
Based in Norway, Bjørnar Aaslund is a member of the NBK (Norwegian Visual Artists Association)
