KS7: Cecilia Flaten

CECILIA FLATEN “ THE PAINTER OF THE MAGIC LIGHTS !. Her work is a big meditation on natural elements. Flaten mixes the fluent atmosphere of the sky with a soft appearance of the horizon. This mixture attracts the landscapes towards less defined and more abstract images. Her work captures the interaction of the light over the landscape, reaching an atmospheric perspective.

Her painting proves a lot of time dedicated to the contemplation of the environment . The traces are careful and discreet. In her artwork, the artist shows how the landscape may look beautiful in its deformity. It is as if one could breath in the mild air and feel the clouds coming down.

Cecilia Flaten’s works are inspired in the Scandinavian Mythology, in the Midnight Sun, in the Northern Dawns, in the lands of the Arctic and of the Patagonia.

The works recall on us perhaps intellectuals, perhaps real landscapes, which, in a poetic game, let us see the magic and the strength of her Norwegian roots, always present in the spirit and the mind of Cecilia Flaten, obtaining in Europe as well as in the United States, the name of „The Painter of the Magic Lights“.
