Through experimentation and use of various artistic techniques, I create abstract patterns telling stories printed on garments.
Therese Enger is based in Hamar, Norway. Surrounded by Norwegian nature I create abstract paintings where I express my impressions from the nature. Quite often we recognize shifts in colours and tone during a day, a week and a month.
In my paintings, I use mixed media such as spray, ink, pastels, charcoal and acrylic. I often make layers to activate the tactile sense and therefore I also use my hands directly into the paint and onto the surface to make the process an important part of the painting. The depht and the structure tell it`s own stories.
Next up is to transfer the print in to different fabrics. The file is sent to the factory for printing and sewing. I use natural fabrics as wool, cashemere and silk and it gives a feeling of pure magic when you discover how art can transform classic clothing to become more vital and unique.
