The exhibit opens in our gallery Saturday 27. Sept at 12 noon.

Lars Løken is a young Norwegian painter who can dwell on a theme for years and makes no excuse about doing so.

"I feel compelled to paint variations on a theme until I am satisfied, until I have exhausted all of the potential in the subject matter. I could be very happy to work on the same theme for the rest of my life. I guess that is what I am searching for."

Lars Løkens work is an escape from reality, a chance to relive his own childhood and contemplate about his own children, about being free and in a state of equilibrium. His expression and perspective on life fascinates his many admirers and collectors of his work. Løkens egg tempera paintings are rough works where sand and cement are natural ingredients, underlining the mysticism and innocense of the children in the foggy, damp and challenginge atmosphere.

Lars Løken was born in Sarpsborg, grew up in Vennesla, studied painting in Oslo and lives and works in Moss.
