Liv Torunn, Switzerland Member Since March 2007 Artist Statement Based on her inner travels, Norwegian artist Liv Torunn translates her inner visions through the digital realm. Accidentally, She discovered the possibilities of digital media while updating her website. Wishing to add older works to her gallery of long gone pieces, She began trying to enhance lower quality photos digitally and a new world opened up to her. Presently, Liv Torunn primarily creates her works using a pen pad and open source software to channel her inner world.
"As an artist my greatest inspiration has always been the human being. The ability to manifest a person or persons on my canvas is always a magical experience. To bring my vision to life through a certain posture or facial expression is more powerful then words for me to tell my story. However, I have experienced more than once that it is best to let the viewer make their own interpretation as my message is the conveyance of feelings."
