Psykedelia

Maria Sundby er født i Oslo 1977, og har sin Master fra Kunsthøgskolen i Oslo 2008. Hun har hatt en rekke utstillinger i inn-og utland i tillegg til offentlige utsmykkinger. I 2011 ble hun tildelt Oslo Bys Kunstnerpris.

Sundbys arbeider er fargesterke og kontrastfulle med visuelle referanser til 60-tallets psykedelia. Billedspråket spenner fra detaljrikdom i skrift og tegning i narrative arbeider, til nitidige og systematiserte abstraherte komposisjoner. Temaer rundt hjem, menneskelige skjebner, forgjengelighet og forfall er nærliggende i mange av hennes arbeider, uten at de nødvendigvis skaper en direkte lineær historie.

Historien rives ned

I en årrekke har Maria Sundby vært opptatt av forlatte og nedrevne hus og historiene bak dem, og undersøker på den måten tema som forgjengelighet og det som blir etterlatt. Historiene har fulgt henne gjennom kunstnerskapet, og har manifestert seg gjennom ulike uttrykk – både tegning, grafikk, maleri, skulptur, video og installasjon.
