Ingunn Hvalø Hansen
Born in Tønsberg in 1954. Lives and works in Oslo.
Ingunn Hvalø Hansen is a painter who works mainly with oil on canvas. Hansen received her education at the Norwegian Academy of Fine Arts in Oslo.
In recent years I have worked with abstract landscapes in large and small formats.
The paintings are built up in layers and the thick brushstrokes, colour and textures, create a unique form of physical presence.
Hvalø Hansen has exhibited extensively and her work is represented in private and public collections such as the collection of the National Museum. Selected exhibitions include: Kunstnerforbundet Oslo, LNM Landsforeningen Norske Malere, Vestfold Kunstsenter, Bergen Kunstmuseum, Blomquist Kunsthall, Suomenlinna in Helsinki, Tromsø Kunstforening, Kunstnernes Hus in Oslo and Trondheim Kunstmuseum.
Group exhibitions include: Goddesses – Kvinner som beveger kunsten, The National Museum Oslo, Blodig Alvor (Bloody Serious), Norwegian Art in the 80s, Bergen Art Museum, Sørlandets Art Museum, Haugar Vestfold Art Museum, Art 4, the National Museum Oslo, Samle Sammen (Collecting Together), The National Museum, Oslo, Keks, Stockholm Kulturhus, Living Art Museum Reykjavik, Uteksi, Wangs Kunsthandel.
