Gallery Unlock is pleased to present, from February 26 to March 26, 2021 "Before the Eyes Focus" a virtual solo exhibition by the Norwegian artist Gro Folkan . The exhibition brings together 21 artworks.

In "Before the Eyes Focus", the artist investigates the space that lies beyond the vision, where the images not yet formed already possess a body, a physical pregnancy, an uncontaminated nature. A gaze that allows access to the auroral dimension, which lies in the middle, between reality and listening to a world not yet revealed and which corresponds to the intermediate time of focusing.

Gro Folkan was born in Oslo, Norway and she lives between Oslo and Tromsoe. She studied Art at the National Art Academy in Oslo. She has had 32 solo exhibitions of her paintings in leading galleries in Norway and abroad and has also taken part in numerous joint exhibitions. Her works have been purchased by the Norwegian National Gallery, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Oslo, the National Bank of Norway, Art collections , national universities, institutions, and national Offices.
She has worked for many years to develop a technique suitable for her purpose. She uses metals a lot : gold, silver, brass, copper, aluminum, tin, smoked silver, palladium, platinum. If suitable she treats them chemically for the deeper layers of the artwork to come through and create new colors. She also uses interference colors that change depending on the angle of view.
“My pictures – Gro Folkan says - are instruments, like runes, used for thousands of years by Northern peoples to invoke hidden aspects of reality.
In our time the runes will not be the same as thousand years ago, but in a different language, and with different types. That is what I am looking for.
The real pictures, the images are not the lines and colors on my canvases, but the images coming into being in the mind of the onlooker’.
Gallery Unlock is a Mymicrogallery project.
