Contemporary Norwegian Painter Frithjof Hoel






“I work with a theme that is based on a highly idealized representation of mankind. It is in many ways a moral project. The themes have references to Blut und Boden aesthetics. Blut und Boden originated in the German Nationalist circles in the early 1900s and was a kind of romantic / religious life philosophy in relationship between family, descent blood and homeland. It was also an idealization of the traditional agricultural and rural living.”
