I’ve meet Katja Aarflot during my research on norsk traditions, culture, and art at Norway. Being Katja an artist herself, an expert on the artists Edvard Munch and Theodor Kittelsen and a true passioned on the surrounding nature and people,… the connection was rather fast and we ended up calling ourselves “sister in arts, brother in arms”.
Katja’s work reveals an immersive knowledge and concern on international political and social matters and that is significantly on her multiple layered collages where the use of the written word and newspaper clippings are often the background. On the foreground, delightful thick opaque bright colorful strokes and thin sun burnt Norwegian paint, veils the sometimes cruelness news articles content. Carefully aged tea and coffee washes adds one more breadth and meaning.
One cannot fully read one of her works deprived of the surrounding creations.
With this piece, Katja shows us the true nature of Trashpo (Trash Poetry) with the use of found objects and the oddness dimension that mailart presents.
