Lars Korff Lofthus, Marianne Morild and Hanneline Visnes
Lars Korff Lofthus was educated at Nordiska Konstskolan (Finland), Kongelige Danske Kunstakademi (Denmark) and Kunsthøgskolen I Bergen (Norway), where he graduated in 2009 with a Masters degree in Fine Art. Lofthus primarily produces paintings, but also works with sculpture, text and installations. His works are characterised by a simplified and absurd approach to popular culture and identity of place.
Hanneline Visnes has worked as a lecturer at Glasgow School of Art since 2000, and has since 2003 been represented by Doggerfisher gallery in Edinburgh. She has exhibited widely in the UK as well as in Europe and was selected for Jerwood Contemporary Painters in 2010. Her works are concerned with the power we perceive from an object based on its monetary value, historical or religious significance.
Marianne Morild graduates from her MA at Central St. Martins in 2013. Her work was shortlisted for the Threadneedle Prize in 2009 and 2012 and her exhibitions include Equinox (2012) and Art Blitz (2010) both at Transition Gallery. She also writes for måg magazine and Garageland. Morild’s works centers around ideas and experiences of beauty and utilitarianism in our concerns with landscape.
