Welcome to the website of the artist Maiken Stene.
Maiken Stene (b. 1983) works and lives in southwestern Norway. She graduated from Malmö Art Academy in 2013 with a BA and MA in Fine Art.
Stene works with painting, installation, text, video and photo on the general subject of how people interact with and visually represent nature, both traditionally and today. She looks at how various industrial alterations of the land may affect our assumed ideas of what nature is supposed to look like. In large scale painting installations, she studies the complex processes that happen from the moment one has an encounter with nature -to how the impressions of this encounter can be transformed into an artistic expression.
Stene has exhibited widely, both nationally and internationally at for example Oslo Kunstforening, Hå Gamle Prestegard, Lunds Konsthall, Akershus Kunstsenter, Uppsala Konstmuseum and The Museum of Public Art in Lund, Sweden.
She is currently in residence at The Nordic Art Centre in Dale, Sunnfjord, Norway, through June 2019. Her next solo exhibition is at Trøndelag Centre of Contemporary Art, Trondheim, Norway, August 2019.
