“Swept in arctic light” painted following a stay in Greenland 1997

Extract from newspaper reviews:

Øystein Hjort, Politiken
“… Birgit Palmberg wraps her figures in a suggestive semi-darkness which only yields to a theatrical architecture in an indeterminable auditorium. There is a great deal of pictorial rhetoric in this, and theatre – quite fascinating theatre at that”.

Frederiksborg Amtsavis:
…Birgit Palmberg passes on experiences and thoughts to form a synthesis with the picturesque.

Dagbladet Djursland:
… she is an imaginative and poetic painter. Colours and forms stream out of her strongly coloristic paintings, as from Pandora’s Box, which hides new discoveries behind the many layers.
