Galleri Riis was founded in Trondheim in 1972 and has been based in Oslo since 1980.
The gallery's exhibition programme reflects a long-standing history, with a primary focus on important contemporary art from the Nordic countries with a selective spotlight on international artists. In addition to its space in Oslo, the gallery maintains a by appointment showroom in Stockholm.
Through several exhibitions over the last decade, Marie Buskov (b. 1980) is well known on the Norwegian art scene for her modest sized works on paper as well as sculptures constructed from steel or cast in bronze, with painted or treated surfaces. These works often come together as continuous installations in the spaces they occupy.
Both a sculptor and a painter, Buskov in her exhibitions often combines modest sized watercolours and collages with wall reliefs and hanging or freestanding sculptures in steel, bronze and ceramics, sometimes monumental in size
Marie Buskov studied at The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Art in Copenhagen, and holds a MFA from Oslo National Academy of the Arts. She has produced several public commissions and her works can be found in The National Museum of Art, Architecture and Design in Oslo, as well as the City of Oslo Art Collection.
