Kari-Lena Flåtens art is about people, dance and movement. All our emotions, conditions and personalities inspires her. She gets her main inspiration from meeting people, not least children and young people, but also dance and movement. She tries to capture the beautiful in the simple. Her expression captures both young and old with a human and recognizable message. The sculptures, mostly in bronze, she produces in collaboration with CAPA Esculturas in Madrid, which is one of Europe's largest and oldest bronze foundries.
