I am inspired by romantic, impressionist paintings and still lifes. I also like to express kindness, warmth, love, unity and joy for those who experience seeing my paintings.
My exhibition "Captured by the Moment"
is in production and deals with different moments in the 40's, which I am inspired and influenced by. Then primarily in terms of social life and body language and I like to use warm colours on the palett.
Selected as 1 of 2 artists described in an exam
project »Landart» at Oslo Met. University in the spring of 2019. The painting "Atmosphere" was used in the project.
Heidi Ødegaard's painting «Atmosphere» has an expressionist expression (Blom, 2018, The big
Norwegian Encyclopedia) and refers to goodness, warmth, unity and joy. The painting technique is reminiscent of the simple expressive power of children's art. We have taken inspiration from her warm use of color when choosing wool as one of the main materials
in the work. Among other things, we have used purple, orange, yellow and green - colors that are repeated in Ødegaard's pictures.
Invited to the 2019 Biennial in Venzia, The Body Language exhibition.
