Wouter Mijland is a Dutch Artist/Sculptor and also a professional forester. He seems to live in a different country every year. This time on a secluded Norwegian island.
Hope you are doing well. l’m working hard to build a new studio at the small Norwegian forest farm l moved into recently. A great place, close to the sea, in the middle of a forest. This year l had some interesting forestry projects as consultant for the state forestry service. Now l am making some designs for sculptural works in public space and some smaller works. l love it how forestry and art keep me alive and inspire each other. Furthermore, l’m writing quite seriously on a book and l’m learning how to go by boat at night. lt’s like walking with your eyes closed, quite exciting. Here are some songs l listened to in 2015.
