Brit says her inspiration for this piece was the William Faulkner quote, "You cannot swim for new horizons until you have the courage to loose sight of the shore." In this modernist landscape, Brit layered mountains and bodies of water in multiple planes, intersected with tonal abstraction. "The visual landscape becomes a vessel that holds memories and longing, as the focus turns to the connection between the subject and the viewer," she says. The highly textured surface and low relief effects are created by a combination of embossed papers and layering of acrylic paint.

Brit J Oie

Weaverville, North Carolina

Artist Brit J Oie grew up in a small rural town on the west coast of Norway where nature was her playground and creativity was a way of life. The men in her family were woodworkers and the women did knitting, sewing and weaving. Brit started her art career as a weaver in Norway. After marrying an American and moving to the United States, she went back to school for a degree in Fine Art. During her senior exhibition, Brit developed her mixed media technique using embossed papers and acrylic paint, which is a culmination of all the styles she has previously mastered. Today, she works in a light-filled studio in the River Arts District of Asheville, NC. Her work is held in numerous private collections in the U.S. and Norway as well as the University of North Carolina, Asheville. Outside of the studio, Brit enjoys hiking, gardening and soaking in outdoor hot springs, relaxing and taking in the river view.

I love Brit's aesthetic...the colors, the mood and the technique. This piece especially called to me and is perfect for the space I had in mind.It was framed in a floating frame which subtlety enhanced it's beauty.
