SLEMMESTAD, NO, September 1, 2016 – / On Thursday the 15th of September the Norwegian artist Henriette Roka-Aardal (b. 1975) opens yet another exciting art exhibition at Rortunet center in Slemmestad, where she shows her work in a new and interesting way to the public. This time she exhibits over twenty paintings, both new and previous works, as well as an interior collection called *KLOSTER (*Monastery).
Roka-Aardal likes to find new ways to showcase art to the public. Earlier this year she organized the painting exhibition “Art in a House” in a show house. Now she surprises everyone by inviting the audience to participate in an artistic collaboration.
A large, white canvas is ready in the show room, so all visitors can contribute by making Rortunet´s unique artwork along with the painter herself, who opened her first exhibition two years ago and already has exhibited in Italy, NYC and even at the Salvador Dali Museum in Berlin. Everyone who participates will get their name on a plaque that will hang next to the painting.
“It will be great fun to exhibit art in a centre where the audience also can participate in this unique art project.” says the artist Roka-Aardal. “When people have the opportunity to contribute and actively participate, the exhibition becomes more personal and they may also experience creativity, inspiration to art itself and a joyful collaboration with the others.” she continues. “You don´t have to be an artist, just come and join us and have fun with the brushes on the canvas” she smiles.
About the Artist:
With a grandfather who was a famous painter (Charles Roka 1912-1991), and a generally creative family, she soon began to draw and develop her creative abilities. Her influences range from old sketches during her student days in England, different textures and structures, and a color palette of earthy tones.
Roka-Aardal combines her inspiration to create a style distinctly her own, where her art, with their pleasant and soft colors and contemporary figurative motifs fits into most homes and interior styles.
Currently, Henriette lives and works in Röyken, just outside of Oslo, as an artist, while exhibiting her work in both national and international galleries. During this autumn the artist attends at the Karmsund exhibition on the West Coast of Norway, before she heads over to NYC for an international art exhibition organized by Re:Artiste, with her paintings of the Picasso-inspired monks.
