Yara International buys "Nourishment"

The painting "Nourishment" was my way of debating the terror attack against Norway the 22. July 2011. Terrorist Anders Behring Breivik used Yara fertilizer to make his devastating bomb which killed eight people and demolished several Governmental buildings in Oslo, including the Prime Minister's office.

 

My point with the painting was the absurd gap between the original intent of use of the Yara fertilizer; to nourish people and save human lives, and Breivik's use of it.

 

I was especially content when Yara International purchased the painting 27th August 2012 - the first day it was displayed at Fineart Gallery in Oslo. The painting is now a part of the official decoration of the Yara International headquarters in Oslo.
