For Samuel Bjorgum painting is an exploration of the act of perception through an engagement with color and light. Bjorgum believes our relationship with what we see is one of mystery and approaches the world from a place of curiosity. Through a process that uses specific parameters Bjorgum interacts with sensation, exploring the ground between movement and stasis, shape and color, form and space.
Within the atmosphere of each work an expression of something undefined encourages a sense of openness and non-specificity. A sense of levity lies behind a serious posture in order to allow a broad range of interpretation and access.
