S.O. Sivertsen

"I know a great deal about unrest. White paper makes me uneasy. I like it raw and far from picturesque and have put on some marks to guide the painting. Often I get surprised. In fact always. Then I’m happy for a while. Style? Don't know. What it's about? Can't say – because then everybody knows."

Stig-Ove Sivertsen lives and works in Mosjöen, Northern Norway, and has over the years participated in many exhibitions in Norway and abroad. A self-taught artist, he works mainly with watercolor as well as acrylic and photography. A member of NFUK (Norwegian Association of Independent Artists), he maintains a personal gallery, Galleri SOS and has exhibited at Atelier Valva, Vefsn Museum and The Swedish Loft in Norway as well as The 66th Northern Norwegian Art Exhibition 2012 and Mid-Nordic Art Festival. Sivertsen’s works reflect a freedom and passion with which he seems to approach his medium. Skillfully executed these watercolors reveal the artist’s unique visual perspective and a strong ability to control the brush but also disclose a surrendering to the medium, letting the brush, the color and the water guide the creation of each unique field of the composition.
