About the artist

Schjølberg creates layered artworks rich in symbolisms and characterized by an overall unsettling effect that asks for an attentive reading of each canvas. The viewers are pushed to reconsider the first impression of a candid fairy-tale world, as eerily violence and nightmarish elements are disguised beneath its surface. These emerge through the twisting and the contrast of gloomy settings with the recurrent presence of enchanted creatures and children whose facial features are blurred in a disquieting manner.
