From the Astrup Fearnley Museum presentation of the exhibition NN-A NN-A NN-A – New Norwegian Abstraction

"In recent years one could observe the field of abstraction developing into one of the most dominating trends on both the international and the Norwegian contemporary art scene. A century long history of abstract art has been infused with new energy by artists who through their knowledge and personal artistic experience not only have embraced the various principles of modernist abstraction, but also movements such as minimalism, conceptual art, Fluxus and land art. This has furnished them with new tools to relate to, and allowed them to re-invent abstract art".
