Synøve Dyrkorn (f. 1966)

Born and raised in Oslo, studied at Nydalen School of Arts.

DYRKORN has been supervised by Kari Mette Wik and attended courses with Helle Kaarem. She has always experimented with shapes and colours, jewellery design, furniture upholstering, painting and sewing.

Inspiration from experiences and impressions from my surroundings is fundamental when starting my intuitive work.

My process is a chase for the unexplored; I always seek to discover something new and exciting. The tangible figurative is not important to me.

Depth and good atmospheres for colour and light is something I work to achieve. I always strive to find the intersection where the light and fragile meets strength and power. I want the elements to unite and communicate, creating tension without bursting.

I do not want to provide guidelines for peoples’ opinions about my paintings, but I hope I can stimulate their imagination and curiosity.

Colours, planes, movements, flows, rhythms. The sky with gauzy clouds floating past. Ripples in the water, the stream, the power. The marbling of the stone. Contrasts between the hard, cold and the beautiful, fragile. Colours in nature and its optimum palette. The organic creating wonderful compositions. Constantly something new appears for inspiration, which I bring in to my painterly world.

Dyrkorn has recently become a part of Bærum Kommunes Art Collection.
