INGUNN MILLA JOERGENSEN
Known for her beautiful barns and striking landscapes, local artist Ingunn Milla Joergensen is celebrating with a solo summer show at the Grand Gallery on Maine Art Hill this August.
Joergensen works in layers, adding paint, scraping off, and often mixing the colors directly on the canvas. Being extremely tactile, she often paints with her bare hands.
“I find that I simplify more and more. So much clutter and noise surround us – I can breathe by paring down to the bare essentials. The spaces in between…where nothing happens, are almost more important. It puts the rest into perspective,” shares Joergensen. “I am working towards my paintings being a mental pause for the viewer. If I suggest half the story, the rest is up to them. I spend a lot of time meditating. Therefore, approaching the same subject over and over becomes like meditative prose. Every time I try to get closer to the subject’s essence, or the soul.”
