About the Paintress

I am the paintress Trine Røssevold who lives, works and exists on the windswept west coast of Norway.

I paint people looking inside themselves. Innside they might see an icon, a bird or a puppet. They might see a role they are taking on, or somebody looking exactly like themselves. In other words; we are looking at classical paintings with a sprinkle of Surrealism. 

I put the paintings in a context which relates to the subject matter of the pictures. The images, colours, lines and composition of paintings respond to surrounding locations as much as anything else.  My upcoming exhibitions will be in hotelrooms and cityhalls.
