“Despite considerable variations in motif and approach, Bjørn Ransve focused on the figure in space as his primary theme from the time of his artistic debut around 1970 until the mid – 1980s. The relation between nature as ideal and freedom of execution had been a consistent source of tension in his images, helping to situate his work in the art-historical context”.
