Mette Mygland (1959) is an ‘explorer’. Audacity and brutal intimacy air a provocative veracity in her paintings, drawings, collages, and installations. With a rapturous yet troubling palette she exposes internal affliction with a focus on through the eternal female body. Physical experiences such as childbirths, milk ejection breast, confronting spread legs explore pain, taboos, and human receptivity. Existential nonconsenting interrogations becomes inquiries into the psychological sceneries and memories of the female mind and its physical representations.
Mygland started her artistic exploration at the age of 46. Her art has been presented in both solo and group exhibitions. She was recently selected for the opening exhibition of the National Museum in Norway.
