GALLERI FINSRUD is the name of two huge galleries, both located in the Frogn municipality of Norway. The size of the galleries is at whole 2500 square metre, and it forms the settings around Reidar Finsruds production and activities.
Reidar Finsrud is today regarded by many as one of the worlds most versatile artists. He works within the majority of thinkable formats and techniques. Painting, drawing, graphic and sculpturing. He does lectures at many topics, and has held his own art school since 1975. He's been thorough the fields of new and modern thinking, especially around technical inventions and industrial design. The technical insight of Mr. Finsrud is shown throughout machines like his handmade grand scaled graphic printing press, and all the machinery in context with his own techniques of casting. The now world known Finsrud Perpetual Mobile from 1996, came as a climax in the line of his numerous technical constructions. With "work years" at about 5000 hours, from the age of 16, Reidar Finsrud is today in possession of a broad experience basis at whole 110 normal annual works. If you count the "work years" and take them into consideration, Reidar Finsrud would be a 128 years old man. This may give him a little "head start".
If these Web pages shall give a good orientation around the activities of Reidar Finsrud, they have to be worked with weekly, something we have been very bad at. Thereby: This page is not finished, and will likely never be. But, more pictures and information will be added in the future, so with patience we'll size it up and build it huge.
