Gro Thorsen - 2013 (exhibition)
Recent Travels - Paintings



Kindly sponsored by the Royal Norwegian Embassy

During 2012 Gro Thorsen continued her worldwide travels and visited the Far East to film for an ongoing commission. Her travels took her to China, Taipai, Seoul, Japan and Dubai. She also managed a few visits to European cities including Milan, Dublin, Oslo and Madrid.
Her work for these series of paintings involves filming life in the cities and capturing the ambience for each city at various times of day and night.
Her travels extended in the early 2013 to Melbourne, Sydney, Singapore, Delhi and Mumbai and most recently to Chicago, San Francisco and Los Angeles.
As well as the City to City series, the Gallery series is included in the exhibition, based on Art Fairs and exhibitions around the world.
