Kiell Torriset at the 369 Gallery, Edinburgh.

Kiell Torriswet, one at Norway’s youngerwell-established artists, is the 369 Gallery’s tirst toreign artist-in-residence, a position established by the gallery during the preparation tor their exhibition at Norwegian art, in conjunction with the Norwegian Government. Interestingly, Torriset trained in this country, in London and Brighton, from 1966 to 1974.

His work, which deals with an interior world oi teelings, is concerned with real people and is in direct relation to his experience. The new work shown is about his emotional reaction to the birth at his children, an unusual theme tor a man, and one which he approaches in an individual way and without any sentimentality. The monoprint series, Source oi Intention l—Vlll, is particularly successtul and well designed. His abstract and symbolic treatment at the theme oi

reproduction presents us with a complete picture of balance and relatedness. The technique itselt is very richly used, exploiting the textures, lines and ilat suriaces which can be produced with this medium. He also makes subtle rather than dramatic use oi the chromatic possibilities which monoprinting lends itselt to. The three works in gesso on paper have a serene sense at balance, as do the acrylic paintings, although these are single representational iigures.

Originally here tor six months, Kiell Torriset and his tamin intend to stay in Scotland until the summer, although his residency ends in February. His wile—an award-winning illustrator oi children's books— is soon to give birth to theirsecond child.

This exhibition is going to Galleri Kin Oslo -who represent the artist- in late February, and then on to Galleri Blanche in Stockholm at the end at April. (Paula Garcia Stone)
