On the verge
Multimedia | The Museum of Contemporary Art, Oslo, Norway | Friday 21 October 2016 - Sunday 26 February 2017
We practise while we play,” was Sidsel Paaske's motto in life. During her short artistic career, Paaske was always open to new ideas and expressed herself in many different media. She started out as a textile artist, but was quick to break into new “ism-free” territory. Her innate desire to experiment caused her to throw herself into a range of different styles and she moved freely among different media, including watercolour, oil painting, textiles, enamel, music, text, book illustration, sculpture and jewellery.

Unlike many old masters for whom drawing was a preparatory tool, Fragonard explored the potential of chalk, ink, and wash to create sheets that were works of art in their own right.
