Heaven and hell 1992 Gallery en Garde
"Using a significant cool distance in the colors, in the realistic tradition of Edward Hopper and Eric Fishl, the artist Birgitta Steen reveals masculinity in four new acrylics and displays well-formed male bodies just as they are...and nothing more. If these paintings give any indication of what Birgitta Steen is going to do in the future, there is cause for great expectations."
Installation of bachelors flat
Bachelors flat is weighty with loneliness and one can easily imagine the solitary middle-aged man who shuttles around the mess, stubbing out one cigarette after the other. The only sound is the TV which labors away in a corner. It gives us an uncanny feeling to look around this apartment, as if we had pushed our way in to peer into the most private moments of a very vulnerable person."
Sun and summer Brille Gallery 1987
"Birgitta Steen has a flair for the exotic and the bizarre. Her special use of distance perspective allows us to view old bunkers in a forgiving light. Itís both beautiful and joyful in this world where nature and art melt together in bright colors. Birgitta Steenís brush dances easily and playfully over the canvas."
