“Therese Nortvedt is focusing specifically on contemporary celebrity offspring. She exploits the viewer´s familiarity and ready identification with the children in question, and thus draws us in.”

“A central characteristic of Therese Nortvedt´s pictorial language is the mythical dimension of her motifs. She presents us with a personal mythology occupied by women, children, animals and dolls, often rendered in feminine pastel.”
