Hege Liseth is a visual artist living in Fredrikstad, Norway. Her practice ranges from paintings, drawings and animations to siteworks and interventions. Her projects often deal with issues related to human consciousness – perception, time and presence.
“I explore the material through various processes and strategies. I build the work layer by layer until it reach a certain mass. The layering and translucent giving it an illusion of spaciousness. Repetitive pictorial elements intertwined, to move the imagery against new forms. The figures crowd and overlay gives a palimpsest effect that suggest the narrative to be potensially endless. The pictorial surface waves between figurative narratives and formless chaos. A space between one state and another, between something and nothing. I am interested in how something can become something else, and the space between them.
