Fanny Brodar

NORWAY, 1971

To Fanny Brodar, painting is like entering an unplumbed place; her works are euphoric tapestries woven by childhood memories, the precious moments of the present and the enigma of the places created by the artist.

Bright colors, childlike characters and scribbled words invite the viewer to delve into his or her own imagination. Fanny Brodar paints vivid and energetic spaces. Her characters are appropriations of popular culture or creations of her own in an unprejudiced mix. The artist’s paintings lure the viewer into her domain: a magical, otherworldly place. She builds on the nostalgic associations of the audience, presenting monsters that resemble familiar characters from childhood, favorite films, and fashion.
