Abstract Paper Art By Marit Roland
For her ongoing series ‘Paper Drawings’, Norwegian artist Marit Roland creates abstract installations entirely made from paper – from large scale sculptures to tiny works in a box.
Roland’s artworks are shown in galleries and museums throughout Norway and after being exhibited, the site-specific pieces are recycled or donated. Speaking of the process behind her artworks, Roland says: “The paper continues a new ‘life’ no longer serving the purpose of art. Giving up something that has taken all my dedication leads to a feeling of ambivalence. As I view the pieces disappear, I also experience a strong sense of freedom in working the way that I do.”
