Kristin Velle-George is an artist based in Stavanger, Norway. She graduated from the Bergen Art Academy, Norway, with a Master's Degree in 2010. She is one of the founders of Elefant workspace. From its inception in 2011 until 2016, she was one of the artists behind the artist run exhibition space, Prosjektrom Normanns. She resently moved in to a bigger studio at Atelierhuset Tou Scene.
Her work mainly includes drawing and sculpture. Through her open use of materials and exploration of form, Velle-George seeks to create a perplexing yet poetic view of the world. The starting point for these works are trivial or ignored objects she finds in her environment. Her recent work shows a sea change in her production methods, reflecting her ambition to blur the boundaries between drawing and sculpture. Maintaining her previous organic focus, her sculptures are the results of various material experiments using items such as wooden sticks, sponges, inflatable bathing animals and pig intestines.
Kristin Velle-George has been exhibited at variously: USF Verftet, Bergen, Norway; Open Source Gallery, New York, USA; Untitled Art Fair, Miami, Florida, USA; Studio 17, Stavanger, Norway; Mellom Himmel og Fjord, Hardanger, Norway; Rogaland Art Centre, Stavanger, Norway; Kurant Exhibition Room, Tromsø, Norway; Skien Art Association, Norway. In 2014 she completed a major solo exhibition at Bryne Art Association, Norway. This exhibition was well received by the public and critical media alike.
