Mette Homar


Mette Homar is educated from University of Gothenburg, SE, The Faculty of Fine Arts Programme in Photography, and from Design School Kolding, DK, Department of Visual Communication (MA). For a number of years she worked with various artistic organisations and artists in San Francisco, such as; Chronicle Books, Smuin Ballet and Yerba Buena Center for the Arts.

Since 2009 she has developed her artistic language processed in painting on paper. Her works presents realistic and often mundane nature settings through a lens of heightened reality, illuminating the inner feelings of nature rather than its outward form alone. Working intuitively and outside the pre-defined and the controlled, balancing her work between figuration and abstraction.

Motivated by Joan Mitchell's paintings and the female abstract expressionist-movement together with Odilon Redon and Axel Salto. In addition, having a background in both ceramics and photography, abstract works in these mediums inspires to great extent her textural language.
