Nils Erik Gjerdevik Biography

The artistic practise of the Danish/Norwegian artist Nils Erik Gjerdevik (1962-2016) consisted of painting and ceramic sculptures, as well as individual works on paper.

His paintings tend toward a more double-edged expression where seemingly divergent ideas and movement meet and become one and the same image. This practice applies to his drawings and his ceramic sculpture work as well.
