Andrea Scholze (b. 1988, Oslo) was educated at the Oslo National Academy of the Arts (BFA, 2011, MFA, 2016). Scholze’s sculptural and figurative works tend towards an organic aesthetic, seeking to capture form and motion rather than achieving polished, static, perfection. Through individual sculptures she channels emotions and tell stories, and roughly modelled sculptures with an expressive, often bleak look, have long been a trademark of her practice. Scholze’s talent has been recognized by the Norwegian establishment. Her work has been acquired by KODE museums in Bergen, Norway and the National Museum of Decorative Arts and Design in Trondheim, Norway for the museum’s permanent collection. Scholze has exhibited nationally and internationally, amongst others at Trøndelag Center for Contemporary Art, Trondheim (2021), Akershus Art Centre, Lillestrøm (2019). Selected group shows include Villa Streccius, Landau der Pfalz, Germany (2021), New Nordic Porcelain Forum, workshops and exhibitions (2021), QB Gallery, Oslo (2021, 2020), KODE Art Museum, Bergen (2019) Patrick Parrish Gallery, New York (2018), TRESOR, Basel (2017), the Collective Design Fair, New York (2016), Talente showcase in Munich (2015) and at the National Museum, Oslo (2013).
