BIT åpner utstilling på Stiklestad 23.juli 2013. Årets Olsokkunster.
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.
