The idea behind this exhibit starts with artist and printmaker Tom Gundersens impressive portraits of well known Norwegian artists and authors. Håkon Bleken is a famous Norwegian painter and printmaker and Stein Mehren is one of Norways greatest poets. He is also an acknowledged painter. Both of these artists are represented on this exhibition. Tom Gundersen uses a printing technique called palimpsest, a graphic prosess from the middle ages where one picture would be printed on another. In Tom Gundersens art he for example prints his portrait of Håkon Bleken on a copy of one of Håkon Blekens works. This creates an interesting dialogue between the two artists. Most of Tom Gundersens prints are variations, one of a kind. Ask us about Freud and Ibsen.

The other artists on this exhibit are striking profiles in their own right and among Norways highly regarded visual artists. Most of these artists are represented on the web gallery. The photos below give you an impression of Striking Profiles in our gallery.
