På jakt etter paradiset i naboens hage
(Searching for Paradise in the neighbor garden)
Anne Haaland Bland
Galleri Koll, Stavanger
Maybe you do not have to travel far to find your paradise, it may be quite close, maybe even in the neighborhood. Anne Haaland Bland has searched for paradise in her neighbor garden, and found it. Here we see close-up paintings of flowers, with the colors used represented on the side. One single flower is a wonder of colors and forms, symbolising summer, flavour and sunshine. We see how a miracle has happened: The same colors of the dots are put together on a canvas, and the result reminds us of Paradise. It is that simple and that complicated.
