Bjørg Lødøen

Bjørg Lødøen (born Oslo, December 7, 1931) is a Norwegian painter, graphics artist, and composer. [Translated from the Norwegian Interwiki sites] Her work is on display in several Norwegian and European museums, and can also be found in the U.S.

Lødøen studied painting at Statens kunstakademi under Professor Alexander Schultz. After graduation, she traveled and studied art throughout Europe. Her skill was recognized by a number of grants, including:
* State Academy of Fine Art grant 1960
* Th. Fearnleys grant 1960
* State Life Grant for Artists 1977-1999

With her solo exhibitions, and as a composer for Rolf Aamot’s movies for cinema and television, Bjørg Lødøen captures and visualizes the energy of our invisible reality. Her paintings and music have been recognized as created in a unique physical and spatial language. The scale of her work ranges from the intimate to the monumental.
