The first and most important influence on art, and the aim to actually paint myself, I got from the Norwegian auto didactic multi artist Hans Breien. He taught me how to paint as I danced the joy of my heart…
I am inspired by the paintings of Edward Munch, and by the ideas of Rudolf Steiner – besides all kinds of efforts done by anyone to create peace in our time.
My inspiration also comes through the nature and the people I have met. Nevertheless, I feel deeply affected by the nerve of the Argentinean Tango…… as the tango mirrors life itself…
My concept on art may be expressed in three words:
LOVE, LIFE and LIGHT
…Although it is the darkness that makes the stars shine …(R.S.)
