Steinar Christensen [1946 - 2020] was always an artist in progress, offering many surprises in his unpredictable oeuvre. He left no clear signature and moved effortlessly and freely between various media. He has done performance, worked with sound and music, created huge installations and objects such as Stella Maris in Artscape Nordland. In recent years he chose to express himself mainly through photography.

Just as poetry represents the densification of an expression, Christensen developed a unique visual language. His recent works are condensed, layers on layers becoming almost impenetrable. The various symbols may seem detached and casual at first glance, however, Christensen invites us to look again. His work opens for both paradoxical constellations and existential situations and serves as silent warnings of the state of our civilization.

Christensen was a professor and Dean at the National Academy of Art in Oslo, professor at Western Norway Academy of Fine Arts and Valand Academy in Gothenburg, and guest professor at the Royal Danish Academy in Copenhagen.

His work has been exhibited in renowned galleries in Norway and abroad. Christensen has represented Norway at La Biennale di Venezia, his works are included in numerous private and museum collections, including the National Gallery, the Henie Onstad Art Centre, Oslo Municipality Collection, The Equinor Art Collection, and Norwegian Cultural Council.
