Exhibition opening 15 August at 18:00.


In Hanne Grieg Hermansen's new works, light has a central place. We have been impressed by her drawing skills in the past. For this exhibition, Grieg Hermansen will also show large works made with colored pencil, and we are proud to be able to show them here in Tegnerforbundet .


I work with drawing primarily based on photography, where technique and time use are an important part of the expression. Formally, I work mainly with pure pencil drawings, as well as more sculptural drawing-based works. Time, manual work, value shift, illusion and the tipping point between drawing and photography are important components in my artistic work.

To the exhibition in Tegnerforbundet I consider the main condition of photography, namely light, both as a concrete form study and a study where the goal is to recreate the actual effect light has on the perception apparatus. Imitating the eye and the camera as visual apparatus and vision technology, respectively, is central to several parts of my project.
