“My work as a psychologist and psychotherapist has inspired me a lot and given my art new dimensions. Now, without words - viewing and expressing inner and outer worlds. Where the conscious meet the subconscious. Texture, colors and layer on top of layers are important aspects in my work.” - AnnChatrin Lasu Forsén
A big inspiration for AnnChatrin’s abstract artworks is the American abstract expressionist Lee Krasner. One could however, also sense some influences from the German abstract visual artist Gerhard Richter - in AnnChatrin Lasu Forsén’s pieces. Wouldn’t you say?
AnnChatrin is autodidact.

The medium used in AnnChatrin’s artworks is mainly oil paint. Having the paint overlap, layer upon layer, often creates for a thick texture, rich in contrast on the canvas surface. Creating both shifts in colors as well as a subtle 3D effect, from a viewer standpoint.
