Ragnhild Nes (b. 1993) is a visual artist from Norway. Her work primarily consists of painting and drawing in an abstract landscape. Nes’s painting is a process of fixating living things in time and space. Similarly, to words, her painting practice involves superimpose images that float on each other without convergence. They are fragments of the world, in which things are no longer things. They have been deprived of essence and objects have disappeared, but they turn into streaks, illuminated surfaces, stylized landscapes, in which colour acquires a greater expressive and chromatic force. Nes has lived many places and see her work evolving through her surroundings. In 2022 she had her first solo show in Italy, at SARP Gallery, 2024 she will exhibit a solo show at Kösk and a collective exhibition in Copenhagen, among other.
