Into Love (Inn i kjærlighet): “Who are you? Where am I? I’m not lost, but I’m somewhere else. Not where I thought I’d be”. Ann Beate recalls the northern part of Norway where she was born, although she now lives in Søgne, in the south of the country. “I remember the landscape, the light and its reflections. In this painting, it’s as if I’d seen these lights somewhere, I would have liked to paint it in another colour with violet, but the blue appeared when I’d decided to abandon it for a while. I had confused blue and violet because porcelain glazes are quite similar before firing. What a surprise, but I couldn’t escape it: the blue came back, but with new tones that blended together.”
