BIO

Siv Storøy is a Norwegian artist & designer living and working in Hedmark, Norway. Siv creates Limited edition Art prints and paintings, and she is exhibiting her work around the world. 

​As an artist and visual storyteller from Northern Norway, I have been influenced and inspired by stories, myths and fairytales as long as I can remember. My images have this sub-tone of otherworldly and mysterious illusion to them, and I constantly make up stories in my mind as the images emerge. Most of my work is made by a mixed media-technique, consisting of pencil, ink, watercolor and photography. Ultimately, I believe that these different angles mixed together, sometimes can create a somewhat surprisingly result. The unexpected is very exciting and the path is always changing. My most recent line of artwork consists solely of women, portrayed in one way or another. I find myself always returning to creating female characters, wanting to explore new ways of showing their strength or vulnerability. The essence of the female archetypes remains a great mystery, and through my artwork I try to both reveal and maintain that mystery.

 

 

WRITTEN ABOUT SIV STORØYS ART: 

A multimedia artist whose works personify a mysterious, somewhat haunted and ethereal appearance, Siv Storøy designs aesthetically striking images using a color palette of predominately black and white that transfix a compelling and contemporary gaze. A feeling of otherworldly and obscure illusion can be extracted from Storøy’s images, transmitting a juxtaposition of digital and reality. Areas of the pictures are digitally overlaid and the opacity is played with, allowing multiple images to be simultaneously exposed. Radiating a dark and dramatic disposition, a harrowingly evocative fantasy is conjured throughout, portraying a rather enticing outcome.
