Henrik Olai Kaarstein utilises any available material to create his works of art. Disregarding normal materials and the restrictions of media, he repeatedly incorporates the medium he paints on as a direct conveyor of his expression, rather than it being purely a background on which to paint. Rucksacks, garment bags, tarps, tape, blankets and so on are used extensively as backdrops for his works of art. Their individual use and connotations are brought into play and become part of the work itself.
