    Symmetricat II
    Biography : Dag Knudsen became a professional photographer after assisting the late Alberto Serejo at the turn of the century. Specializing in people and working on medium format, shooting commercials, fashion and portraits, Knudsen has worked with a variety of clients and projects across the globe. His career has featured advertising campaigns, fashion editorials, portraiture and exhibitions in several countries. Dag Knudsen has since 2010 been published in Copenhagen, Paris, London, Milan, Tokyo, Seul, Buenos Aires, Bogotá, San Fransisco and New York. Dag Knudsen started exploring symmetry as an effect in his photographic works a decade ago. The first "symmetricat" was photographed five years on in 2012. It was most recently in 2016, that Knudsen shot a editorial for a magazine based in New York city where he used a Sphynx cat as a collaborative model. In the wake of this series, he went on to shoot various different takes with other hairless felines on colorful backdrops. Adding a different perspective, albeit by obscuring, Knudsen seeks to reveal a subjective experience of the divine heralding to the ancients who also worshiped feline animal as a divine being.

    Untitled
    Biography : EMIL OLSSON (1982) Swedish artist Emil Olsson is an innovative artist. He loves to mix different styles and materials such as spray paint and oil in the same painting, or stencils with hand finishing. The contrast between the old and the new: a Renaissance street art on canvas. His paintings mostly represents women who are, in his opinion, everyday heroes. I started to take an interest in paintings and painting when i first discovered street art and urban culture. It was love at first sight. I can't really say what it was that caught my attention, the strong statements or the beauty of the artwork. Perhaps the combination. I find inspiration in ordinary things, everyday actions and happenings. And I am always trying to highlight female thoughts and feelings. To me, a woman is a warrior and a hero, forever fighting patriarchal society.

    Xevi Sola - Dance for me
    Dance for me
    Biography : Xevi Solà Xevi Solà lives and works in Girona (Spain). He studied Fine Arts in the University of Barcelona. He worked in a psychiatric hospital for years, experience that he considers it important to understand his own work. His work has been exhibited in galleries and Art fairs in Norway, Spain, Germany, France, Netherlands, Brasil and Taiwan. In 2014 he won the Young Art Award in the Taipei Contemporary Art Fair. “My scenes almost always occur in front of a house, a house with large windows, where someone might be watching, without anyone seeing him. This house on the hill becomes a character itself, a silent witness of the scene. I search not only the contrast between appearance and intentions of the characters, but I also try to communicate the visual strength, in formal terms, for example with the use of complementary colors or with the use of the contrast between vertical and horizontal lines, or placing the characters standing on a flat landscape to transmit emotional intensity and even some sadness. In short, I think the energy that emerges from the vision of any image is closely linked to the use of opposites. The stronger the contrast, the stronger the energy. The use of opposites provides greater visual impact, and makes easier the final reading of the work.”

    Rachel Ann Stevenson  - Vigils Echo
    Vigils Echo
    Biography : Rachel Ann Stevenson (1982) Rachel Ann Stevenson was born in London UK, where she still lives and works. Educated at the NULC College of Art and Design, The Oval School of Figurative Sculpture, The Royal Society of Portrait Sculpture and Taxidermy under the tuition of Mike Gadd, she works in figurative bronze and mixed media sculptures, often adding taxidermy and glass in order to create a seductive and elegant yet spooky and eerie feel. The subjects within Stevenson work are inherently autobiographical, as she creates starkly beautiful and haunting images, drawing on feelings of vulnerability, love, loss, longing, to desire and finally to be desired. In short, life in all its strained and strange beauty, often influenced by literature and fairy tales. Stevenson’s 'Vigils Echo' series captures a strange untamed beauty. The apparently fragile creatures look like they are made of porcelain, but are in reality strong and solid beings cast in polystone or lacquered bronze. “In my work I try to capture the impossible the swirling mist of a dreamers mind, as artists we are daydreamers and our business is capturing the impossible, holding on to it and showing it to the world.”

GALLERI RAMFJORD
Galleri Ramfjord was founded in 1998 by Elisabeth Ramfjord.
Centrally located in Oslo, the premises hold three exhibition spaces covering more than 400m2 in total. Historically, the gallery's prime mission has been to champion newcomers and emerging artists. However, as the artists who joined the stable almost 20 years ago have made names for themselves, the gallery now also represents a number of well-established artists. A dynamic exhibition venue in downtown Oslo, Galleri Ramfjord is known for its frequent cross-disciplinary events and artistic stunts. While the main focus is on oil painting, there is also a wide range of drawing, mixed media, video, sculpture and installation on display.

Over the last few years, Galleri Ramfjord has had increasing success on the international art scene, collaborating with partner venues in New York, Amsterdam and Copenhagen. Since 2013, it has participated on the international art fair circuit, with great success and sold-out shows at Art Copenhagen (2013, 2014, 2015), SCOPE Miami (Art Basel Miami week 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016), SCOPE New York (Armory Week 2015) and Scope Basel, during Art Basel in 2016 and 2017.

In January 2015, Elisabeth Ramfjord curated an exhibition at MANA Contemporary Museum in New Jersey, while securing five artist-in-residence spaces for her represented artists in the summer of 2015. Later in 2015, she was selected to be on the Board of Directors at The Eileen S. Kaminsky Family Foundation (ESKFF) - a New Jersey based channel for connecting artists, curators, collectors, galleries, cultural institutions, and the public through exhibitions and programming based on private contemporary art collections.
