Odin Borgen works as a visual artist in the classical figurative tradition, with an emphasis on oil paintings. He lives and works in Sarpsborg Norway. The theme of many of his motives extends to turning points, self-reflection, compas-sionate relationships and stops in life where time is obtained by reflection.
Design and expression are rooted in the realistic tradition. He visualizes a space where reflection and observation are central and where the viewer is given open-ness to interpretation and reflection. The look is turned inwards and looks at the correspondence between an outer and inner, the individual's dance of life and the fragility of the individual's existence. The paintings are made in oil on canvas. Chiaroscuro is a common denominator for several of his works, which are again known from Leonard da Vinci and Caravaggio.
Odin Borgen has studied drawing and painting at the university of South-Eastern Norway but has mainly acquired knowledge by studying under Odd Nerdrum and by studying old masters.
