9 Questions to Linne Urbye.
Norwegian artist, living and working in New York City.
What is your art about?
My work method is a relatively intuitive and open-ended process based on studio practice where I usually work on several pieces at once and the paintings inform each other.
Please tell us more about your working process, routine, your studio set up and the way you approach new artworks.
Process is important, and I try to allow room for mistakes that in turn can open up for new possibilities. My paintings are informed by earlier works, patterns, geometry, handwriting and mark-making in general.
What is fertiliser for your work?
Just being in the studio, working.
Who or what has recently impressed you?
Have a beer with an artist of your choice? Whom?
What’s your favourite city and why?
New York City, I like the energy and diversity.
What’s your favourite restaurant and why?
‘Lovely Day‘, for the atmosphere.
What would you do with five euro found in the streets?
Buy my dog a treat.
Do you have any dream projects in mind that you would like to do in the future?
I don’t really have any.
