Homstvedt presents metaphoric figures rendered in a thickly painted style. The texture and application of the paint are reminiscent of woodblock print methods or textiles, and make reference to a Norwegian craft palette, particularly the subtle colors traditional to rosemaling, a style of 18th century decorative painting. Flowing lines and imaginative flourishes are characteristic of Homstvedt’s backgrounds, which set off iconic, archetypal scenes.
