“A message of distress (Rørviknipa)”

Rørvikanipa-a-message-of-distress-small2

Much of my work deals with my feelings and thoughts about the choices humanity takes, the impact it has on nature and life around us, and our future.

Sometimes these greedy choices come to close for comfort.

I grew up close to this fjord (Førdefjorden-painting above).Now the Norwegian government will allow Nordic Mining to remove a mountain in the hunt for rutile, and deposit large parts of mining tailings in a submarine disposal in the fjord.
