Anne Katrine Senstad was raised in Singapore and Norway, today she lives and works between New York and Oslo, Norway. She received her art education at Parsons School of Design and The New School for Social Research in New York 1994 and 1999. Senstad’s practice lies in the multi disciplinary intersections of installation art, photography, video, neon sculpture, immersive installation, landart and site specificity, with a focus on the phenomena of perception and the cognitive system in response to the properties of light, sound and color. Senstad is concerned with sensorial aesthetics, perception and the transformative, – the transcendental ideas of art and philosophical practices. Through advanced in depth research she has examined spatial, topological and scientific phenomena of light, sound and color since the mid 1990’s, a foundation for her explorations in the experiential, participatory and experimental. In her ongoing field work, she engages in cultural, social and political interactions through active, organic and personal involvement for a wider educational and collaborative platform between diverse ideologies, developing a new folklore and amalgamation between post-modern individualism and internationalism. Senstad created the central public art work for The Wolfe Center for the Arts at BGSU in Bowling Green, OH that opened in 2010, and designed by Snohetta Architects.

Adrian Sibley Profile
I paint to put the viewer of my work in a different frame of consciousness. My ultimate goal is to open your subconscious. If my abstract forms can make you feel slightly uneasy my “magic” is doing it’s job. When I name my pieces several ideas come to mind. Most of it is music, all of it is color, quite a bit is pain/illness and a portion is hurt.…
