Tage Fredheim Artist Bio:

Tage Fredheim had his formal art education at the academy in Oslo, advised by the professors Knut Rose and Alf Jørgen Aas. In 1993 he was awarded the Aksel Waldermars prize. Since an early age he has also played rock music with various bands. Favorites have been Frank Zappa, Pink Floyd, Prince, Eagles and Beatles of course. In his last year as a master student at the art academy Fredheim was invited to paint a portrait of his professor Knut Rose. This was commissioned at the professor's studio at Bygdøy. Fredheim`s works have been bought by art collectors, public institutions and private companies such as the Royal Carribbean Cruise Lines. ************************************* "Fredheim takes base in certain abstract expressions as suggested by Professor Knut Rose at the Academy in Oslo. Instead of to condense and concretize the abstract elements in the direction of a figurative motif, Fredheim allows purely painterly elements continue to dominate the creative process. This creates a slide into a new domain of painting and a further progress toward a freer expression - he struggles to keep the images open to new directions and meanings. This creates the space for a new kind of aesthetic. The works can be viewed individually or in conjunction. Grouping images side by side also creates an interesting interaction between the basic timbre of the individual works. In some paintings Fredheim lays geometric structures or landscape features in bottom before paint coats are applied, often in 20 to 30 transparent layers in a single image. In these works there is a dynamic between the previous ideas and the wider movement which acts as a structural model. Distinct characteristics of the artist's paintings are texture and coloration - an end result of simple but thoughtful paint application and structures suggested in the abstract motifs".
