For the past twenty years, Maibritt Ulvedal Bjelke (born in Denmark in 1967) has been exploring painting, focusing solely on the process, colour and matter, as well as her physical and intellectual involvement. Since 2009, the artist has left behind the gesture painting that had until then been her trademark for more geometric and graphic compositions, with colour and light remaining at the centre of her work. On surfaces striped with fine lines of paint, she plays with the bright colours, the juxtaposition and the break, giving a feeling of exploding movement, of vibrating light to create an artwork subtly tinged with emotional depth.
