WORLD CLASS PSALIGRAPHY

 

Karen Bit Vejle uses her pair of scissors as her brush when she creates her beautiful

images of art in paper. The art of psaligraphy is thousands of years old, with master

artists in China and other areas of Far East. This particular form of art hit Europe with

the wave of Eastern influence in the 17th century and forward. Bit is of Danish origin

living in Norway for many years. The Danish tradition of clipping images in paper is particularly strong in Scandinavia, and Bit has mastered the art since she was a young girl.

 

The Norwegian art historian and museum director Jan-Lauritz Opstad has written the fascinating story of Bit’s life and work.
