Liv Tandrevold Eriksen



Liv Tandrevold Eriksen (f. 1976, Oslo) is educated from KHIO, Oslo Institute of Colour. Early on in her career Tandrevold Eriksen worked primarily with drawing, before making a switch to painting in the mid 2010s. Her move from one medium to another was a continuation of her playful approach to form and colour, and the graphic qualities of Eriksen’s first paintings often pointed to her artistic background in drawing. The spaces conjured by her new paintings appear increasingly ambiguous; her use of multicoloured attachments look perfectly at home on the paintings’ surfaces, emphasizing her ability to push for new ways of approaching her subject.  Tandrevold Eriksen’s work is included in numerous private and public collections, such as Statens Kunstråd, Sverige, Equinor and Norwegian Culture Council. Previous solo shows include Wave/Wave/Wave QB Gallery, Oslo (2020), LNM, Oslo (2019), Tag Team, Bergen (2015), Tegnerforbundet, Oslo (2013), Kunstnerforbundet, Oslo (2009). Selected group shows include Stavanger Art Museum (2020, 2015), QB Gallery Oslo 30 Grader i Februar, Yellow, Olje og Begjær (2021, 2019), Helsinki Biennale (2008) and The Stenersen Museum, Oslo (2004).
