BIO

Siv Storøy is a Norwegian artist living and working in Hedmark, Norway. Siv creates Limited edition Art prints and paintings, and she is exhibiting her work around the world. 

As an artist and visual storyteller from Northern Norway, I have been influenced and inspired by stories, myths and fairytales as long as I can remember. My images have this sub-tone of otherworldly and mysterious illusion to them, and I constantly make up stories in my mind as the images emerge. Most of my work is made by a mixed media-technique, consisting of pencil, ink, watercolor and photography. Ultimately, I believe that these different angles mixed together, sometimes can create a somewhat surprisingly result. The unexpected is very exciting and the path is always changing. My most recent line of artwork consists solely of women, portrayed in one way or another. I find myself always returning to creating female characters, wanting to explore new ways of showing their strength or vulnerability. The essence of the female archetypes remains a great mystery, and through my artwork I try to both reveal and maintain that mystery.

 

 

WRITTEN ABOUT SIV STORØYS ART: 

A multimedia artist whose works personify a mysterious, somewhat haunted and ethereal appearance, Siv Storøy designs aesthetically striking images using a color palette of predominately black and white that transfix a compelling and contemporary gaze. A feeling of otherworldly and obscure illusion can be extracted from Storøy’s images, transmitting a juxtaposition of digital and reality. Areas of the pictures are digitally overlaid and the opacity is played with, allowing multiple images to be simultaneously exposed. Radiating a dark and dramatic disposition, a harrowingly evocative fantasy is conjured throughout, portraying a rather enticing outcome.
