RUNI LANGUM (1958)
Runi Langum studied at the Art Academy of Trondheim, Norway and at the École Nationale Supèrieure des Beaux Arts in Paris, France. She is considered one of Norway’s best draftsmen. Since her debut in Svelvik Art Centre, she’s had a number of solo exhibitions in Norway’s top galleries, like Trondheim Art Centre, Kunstnerforbundet and Tegnerforbundet in Oslo. She has also been selected for the highly regarded National Autumn Exhibition, Østlandsutstilllingingen, Trøndelagutstillingen and Norwegian Pictures, as well as group exhibitions in Gallery F15, The Stenersen Museum, Vestfold Art Centre Haugar, Gallerie des Beaux Arts and the Goethe Institute in Paris. Langum has been represented at Galleri Ramfjord since 2008.
“Her drawings clearly show that she prefers working with pastels and pencils. Her line is sensitive, and finds its place through a fairly figurative set of motifs, always with the human form at the core. Whether the forms are recreated in rest or motion, they can be recognized by expressive lines filled with color.”
