"An artist who manipulates the sign. This is Kari Elisabeth Haug. An artist able to paint the silence of the world. The reality that she choses to represent, is a reality that Kari has in mind and heart.

In order to be part of this immense and grand eternity which is called «LIFE» we are obliged to handle changes, to see the reality, but also the possibilities. KEH
