About the Artwork:

“The world sometimes seems to spiral out of control, especially these last few years. And I find myself disappointed at how poorly we are doing as custodians of this earth. Then I look at the younger generation, and see a clarity of choice and direction in them, that many of us have missed. I think I can see a future where they live WITH nature, and not FROM nature, as we have done for so long.” – Anne Angelshaug

About the Artist:

(Artist Bio)

Born in Oslo, she grew up in a small village at the west coast of Norway with teachers for parents and two older brothers.

She studied illustration in England at Falmouth University, where she met her future husband, the artist Julian Mills.

She has exhibited widely, both in her native Norway, and abroad .

“Again and again, we make poor choices with horrendous consequences for this beautiful planet. My goal is to explore and highlight these choices and problems without getting preachy or too glum..

The actual look of my work has a lot to do with my background as an illustrator. Since the subject matter that I want to explore and communicate is often dark or melancholic, I like to juxtapose this with a fun and fairytale-like look to the work. I want to “draw” the onlooker in and then let them discover that everything is not as it should be in this “beautiful” place. I love the uneasy pairing of innocence/cute and ominousness.”

(Artist Statement)

In my work, I often embark on explorations of the intricate relationship between humans and nature, delving into the profound interplay of actions and consequences. Venturing into surreal and futuristic scenarios, I invite viewers to become voyeurs, gazing upon scenes where both humans and animals narrate tales of what has been and what lies ahead.

Fascinated by the creation of tension, I frequently juxtapose the ‘man-made’ against the backdrop of the natural world. This creative tension manifests itself in a realm reminiscent of a light fairytale—a world adorned with beauty and innocence, yet concealing a deeper, melancholic undercurrent. My intention is to lure the onlooker into this seemingly ‘innocent’ place, only for them to discover that everything is not as it initially appears. I thrive on the delicate balance between the cute and the ominous, inviting the audience to engage in a visual narrative that transcends traditional boundaries.
