Believing that surroundings can influence one` s health and mind, Painter and Physiotherapist Aase Birkhaug has combined her two passions by painting Roses for a soothing effect on humans.
Having fallen in love with flowers, nature and painting from early age, it was only natural to merge these factors together at some point, and by combining the aesthetic beauty of botany with her skills as a painter.
It is documented that colors have an effect on the sensory system, and some years ago I made the waiting room in my physiotherapy office into an exhibition for my paintings, so I discovered that it influenced the patients mental state.
The Song "The Rose" by Bette Midler
TEXT - LYRICS
Bette Midler Lyrics
Some say, "Love. It is a river
That drowns the tender reed"
Some say, "Love. It is a razor
That leaves your soul to bleed"
Some say, "Love. It is a hunger
An endless aching need"
I say, "Love. It is a flower
And you its only seed"
It's the heart afraid of breaking
That never learns to dance
It's the dream afraid of waking
That never takes the chance
It's the one who won't be taken
Who cannot seem to give
And the soul afraid of dying'
That never learns to live
When the night has been too lonely
And the road has been too long
And you think that love is only
For the lucky and the strong
Just remember in the winter
Far beneath the bitter snow
Lies the seed that with the sun's love
In the spring becomes the Rose
THE WORLD - THE EARTH on THE PLANET EARTH
My paintings are regularly described as very soft and mild. The color combinations I use are tastefully and delicately fused to make a motif that can be described as very soothing to the eye.
Since march 2016 I have received 78 international Art awards , and International Art Prizes for my Rose Paintings.

JD Malat Gallery - Online Exhibition
Abstraction and The Natural World
1 April – 8 May 2020
JD Malat Gallery is proud to present the best of its abstract painters in Abstraction and The Natural World. This online exhibition aims to demonstrate the multifaceted nature of painterly abstraction that the gallery programme has to offer.
From the ethereal mountainous landscapes by Swiss artist Conrad Jon Godly, to the mesmeric swirling paintings by Californian artist Andy Moses, this online exhibition embraces many dialogues within the history of painting, from nature, landscape and science to abstraction. As such, this online exhibition engages with the theme of the natural world and its influence over abstract painters.
In an attempt to underline the wide-ranging influence of nature over abstraction, this exhibition juxtaposes such representational paintings by Conrad Jon Godly with the fluid and expressive paintings by Icelandic artist Katrin Fridriks.
Working from memory and using impasto brushwork, Godly explores how his painterly medium evokes the tangibility of rocky Swiss mountains with dynamic gestural brushwork; by comparison, the work of Katrin Fridriks - so profoundly impacted by the landscapes of her native Iceland - reveals how the fluidity of nature’s elements are emulated through splashes of paint.
Through this series of contrasting works, Abstraction and The Natural World also highlights the range of responses from artists dealing with the interrelationship between their technical process and the natural world.
JD Malat Gallery also hopes to demonstrate the breadth of our artistic programme by presenting brand new works by Colombian artist, Santiago Parra and Japanese artist, Masayoshi Nojo, as well as newly acquired works by Victor Vasarely, Yayoi Kusama and Marlene Dumas.
By combining each artist’s unique perspective on their natural surroundings, this online exhibition aims to unveil how artists utilise the infinite variety of natural elements and forms as a wellspring of creative abstraction.
JD Malat Gallery specialises in contemporary art and champions a broad spectrum of emerging and international contemporary artists. The programme consists of an array of exciting artists supported by year-round exhibitions and contemporary art fairs.
