Erlend Steiner Lovisa (1970) paints still life portraits of females in his own stage-managed settings. The woman portrayed has a story to tell. Her face is obscured by her hair and it is left to our own imagination to seek the story hidden behind.
Erlend takes photos of his subjects and paints from these. He stage sets the scene with the subjects taken out of their everyday surroundings and placed on a beach or in a wood or a field or even on a wall.
By covering the subjects face Erlend forces the observer to guess at the story behind the scene. Why is she sitting there? What is she hiding? The woman is elusive, transient, enslaved, forcing us to want to unravel her secrets.
In his latest series, With hart and soul, the artist adds a new element into his paintings: taxidermy, stuffed animals fixed on a piece of wood. The combination of the dead hear (the wigs) holding by the girls and the hair of the dead animals is more than symbolic.
