The beauty of Messen was to meet a community of people involved in this “strange ” world called art, looking for something I am looking for too.
To live the simple life, just working and the will and pleasure to share time and thoughts.
All my painting after my time there has been based or freely inspired by the landscape there, and I still referred to sketches and photos I’ve taken there during my stay.
Rosanna Vio (Italy, lives and works in Oslo) stayed in Messen for a period of 3 months in 2012. And had an exhibition with her drawings at Galleri Puls in Norheimsund (Kvam community) in 2013.
