Narrative joy, humor, and tolerance characterize Gudrun Skeie Stokstad's (1940-2016) work. The textile sculptures are detached dolls and animals. And brightly colored birds are often the central motif. The birds are humorously depicted with human characteristics. She places the same type of figures in simplified landscapes in her applications, emphasizing the ornamental and simple symbols.
