About The Artwork

My paintings often have abstracted architectural elements, like buildings, doors, stairs, pools etc. often combined with contrasting elements from nature. The elements are not realistic, but could be seen more like a theatrical scenery. The scenery are always without people. For me this create a strange and mystical feeling, like it is before something is going to happen or after something has happened. I like this feeling, it make me curious, and I always want to walk further into the space of the picture and explore what is behind and beyond what we can see. Colours are important for me, and I always try to combine colours so that they give the unique feeling to my motives.

Violet Polsangi is a Norwegian-Iranian artist who mainly works with acrylic paint on canvas. Her paintings have a unique geometric style that combines both abstract and concrete elements. Violet Polsangi was born in Tehran, Iran, and started to paint already as a child. As a teenager she was an apprenticed to several famous Persian artists, and as a 24-year-old, she was accepted to the biennial at the Tehran Museum of Contemporary Art. In 1993 Violet Polsangi moved to Oslo in Norway, where she has lived since. In Oslo she studied at Einar Granum Art College, and also studied to be a Teacher in Art and Design at Oslo University (Oslo Met). Over the years Polsangi have developed the distinctive geometric style that combines the abstract and the concrete. Although her paintings might be mainly abstract, they usually contain elements from both architecture and nature. Many of Polsangis works might be perceived as fictional sceneries, where elements from architecture and nature are used as theatrical backdrops beyond time and space. The absence of people in her motifs strengthen a mystical theatrical feeling, maybe before the performance or after the show has ended. Polsangi usually work with strict geometrical shapes and controlled straight lines in her images, but her creative process in composing her paintings is very intuitive and improvised. Starting with simple basic forms, the motif develops and changes along the way. She usually works with a painting knife to put the acrylic paint on canvas and use tape to create the sharp edges. In recent years, Polsangi have also started to explore Digital Graphic Artwork in the same style and design. Violet Polsangi is a member of Norwegian Association of Independent Artists (NFUK) Polsangis artwork is represented by several Norwegian galleries, among them FineArt Oslo, Norways biggest art gallery.
