About Us
Welcome to the newly opened shop Kirrintaarnet !
The name Kirrintaarnet is for the childhood dreams we carry with us through life ...


I live close to the wild nature of Norway, along with three deerhounds
and a tame crow. I am surrounded by animals , nature and a fine collection of antiques and salvaged objects.
This is also the basis for my digitally created pictures. Animals , landscapes and patterns are popping up in multi layered montages. I often start up with old photos from my vast private owned collection of over 100 years old cabinet cards and other objects and find something that touches me greatly. This foundation is then processed further, things are added and subtracted , till the image gets its character and identity.
Most of the more contemporary photographs I use , are taken by me with my own camera, some by friends that kindly have given me the permission to use these in my images. Now and then I use elements from ancient paintings that are more than 200 years old and open to the public. In Norway we call that "fallen into the free".
I work towards a mood of redeeming freedom and authenticity, often expressed through quirky visual juxtapositions . And it is my great aspiration that spectators should capture this content, and be invited to communicate.

Formal education:
Professional nurse from Haukeland Sykepleierhøgskole in Bergen.
Master Degree from the Art Academy in Bergen ,KHIB.

All my digital images come in a limited edition of 30, that means that only 30 prints of that original digital image exists worldwide. I take great pride in keeping this limit and the file for the image , that I keep in my private home , will be deleted when the edition is sold out.
All the 30 prints in the edition are defined original as I created the image on the computer digitally .
Each print will be numbered, signed and dated and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.

Thank you for visiting my shop!

Best wishes from Merete Mowinckel
