A new journey of a nomadic series
An exhibition attempts to advance lines
Under lines of the imprinted traces of tangible memories
Under lines of the drifts before and after
Under lines of the indulgence of hearing
Under lines of the naturally formed
Under lines of the uncontrollable (re)shaping
Under lines of the adjusted sights
Under lines of the uncertainty from the semi-translucent
An united expedition on brighter days

In the mundane, he tries to find those hidden gems take makes life interesting and highlights them through abstraction.

His work aims to cultivate experiences that can connect, and shared between, the viewer/participant and the work.Monsås graduated with a MFA from Trondheim Academy of Fine Art. His work has been commissioned for Hurtigruten (2018) and REV Ocean (2020). He was bestowed the Debutant Award at the 45th Trøndelags Exhibition in 2021. Monsås lives and works in Trondheim.
