Birgitte Valentin

Experience the fascination and inspiration I am of a different nature and culture, as I express in my paintings and sculptures, as an acceptance of nature’s superiority and human diversity.

My meeting with the different natures and cultures that exist around the world, has made a big impression on me, Faroe Islands, Norway, Swedish Lapland, Africa, Polynesia and Australia with both violent and beautiful tranquil and unusual nature which characterizes the people that live on these sites from the culture and nature, they were born in.

A little philosophical term, these experiences strengthened my belief in the necessity of acceptance and equality between people and cultures where the inner and outer world must be of equal importance.
