Ane Barstad Solvang
Ane Barstad Solvang (b. 1991) works with text, drawing, painting and comics. Her work circles around the traditional and modern female role in western culture, and society’s expectations for women today. Investigation of topics such as the relationship between humor, individual trauma and illness are recurring motifs in Barstad Solvangs work - alongside domestic realities in contrast with scenes from the Norwegian fauna. She builds her own poetics through a rhythm of abstract and figurative watercolour paintings bound together by rhymes. Her third book, “Sporty ponni”, is published by Colorama Print (2022). Barstad Solvang lives and works in Oslo.
