Biography from University of Wyoming Art Museum:

Anne-Karin Furunes (Norwegian, b. 1961)

She creates large-scale images by perforating black or white painted canvases with thousands of various sized holes.  Similar to the dot pattern of the printed image, Furunes images are photographic persona of her subjects.  Her portraits are taken from photographs in a Swedish archive devoted to the now-discredited notion of categorizing people by race, ethnicity, and mental capacity.  The covert program conducted by the Swedish government included the forced sterilization of those who were considered imbecile, deviant, or a burden to society.  Furunes anonymous portraits from the archive restore respect and dignity to her subjects.

Furunes studied at the National Academy of Fine Art, Oslo and is a professor and dean of the Trondheim Art Academy, Norway.  She is extensively known in Europe and Australia; her introduction to the US was through a Barry Friedman Gallery exhibition in 2007.  She is represented in such public collections as the National Museum of China, Beijing; the National Museum of Contemporary Art, Oslo; the Tromsp Museum of Contemporary art Norway, the Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, Finland, and the Museum of Art, Trondheim, Norway.
