Playful, airy and feminine. Such is the first impression of the wall Marit Victoria Wulff Andreassen has painted in the cafeteria in Christies gate 12.
And it is decorative. Flowers and trees unfold their stems, branches and roots across the great surface, weaving around each other. But this is just at the surface. For are these really plants? Or a child and a girl walking together? Are the shapes at the top of the picture clouds, or rather entangled strands of hair? Are the lines owned by the forest, or are they nerve fibers of the mind? Perhaps a web of dreams? The gaze keeps shifting between nature and our internal visions.
