Hamsun’s Home – 2017

Hamsun’s Home, 2017, 16×20, Acrylic on Canvas, Not for Sale

Inspired by my visit to the Hamsunsenteret in Hamarøy, Norway (see blog post here), I wanted to paint the Hamsun Center in its beautiful surroundings – Pan’s woods so to speak due to the statue of Pan nearby. The building is such a stark contrast to the landscape, yet it entirely fits within – trees play off the background of the building, wood is used as cladding, the openings in the building deal specific views to the landscape with the rooftop providing a veiled panorama – much in the way that Hamsun wrote.
