Ornulf Opdahl: Mood Paintings of the North

Fri 27th Nov - Fri 26th Feb 2010

Click here for 2013-14 Opdahl exhibition

It is no mere coincidence that Norway’s most distinguished landscape painters come from the west of Norway, a landscape which is marked by deep contrasts and an evanescent light. Ornulf Opdahl lives and works on the island of Godoy on the west coast near Alesund where he was born.

Born in 1944, the Norwegian Ornulf Opdahl is one of the most important painters working in Scandinavia today. Strongly influenced by the sublime sense of place so evident in the magnificent coastal landscape of his native West Norway, his powerfully scaled, lyrically charged work draws upon and develops stimulating currents from both his own Norwegian landscape tradition and the philosophical or spiritual concerns of much post-1945 abstract art
