Gjertrud Hals

Multimedia sculptor

Being born and raised on a small island off the north-western coast of Norway has been the major influence on Gjertrud Hals’s artwork. Much of her work is an attempt to express the connection between the island’s micro-history and the world’s macro-history. Her creations are “nets artworks” made from thread, metal wire, paper or paper fibre, as well as embroideries and 3D works made from paper and fibre, metal wire and resin. “I am working with the connection between form, light and shadow”, she explains. “For me, lightness is an important quality, often combined with sizes and shapes that are normally thought of as massive and solid. When I am creating sculptural volumes, I prefer to use materials that look fragile, but are actually physically strong.”
