Bjornar Aaslund’s Approach
Bjornar sees painting as an intuitive process, and likens the act of making the first marks on a canvas to stepping into untouched snow. Whether creating landscapes or seascapes, Bjornar does not record any one particular place, and instead imagines his subject from his memories. When painting from his imagination and his memory, Bjornar imparts emotion into each and every brushstroke. Linking the recognisable with the unknown makes Bjornar’s paintings open to the viewer’s own interpretation.
