Fredrik’s sculptures are not abstractions, they are not even abstract, but highly concrete. They are images hewn from the rock. They are incarnated from mother earth, from matter herself…

At any given time, there is someone doing something distinctly different. Something no one else can do, or even try. Something which, in what is both a hypersensitive and cynically-ironic art scene, appears independent enough to slip in and out of the conversation unaffected.

by Tommy Olsson, art critic Morgenbladet

It is difficult to criticise the sculptures of Fredrik K.B. without casting doubt on all human experience – which is an amusing thought until you realise this also applies to your very own experience…

It all started with a dream I had one night as a little boy. In this dream I walked into the mountain area called Jotunheimen to escape from all the people…

Home in Haarlem, resting and enjoying life with my ❤️ in the best place @nativehaarlem with so much love from so many people #vijfhoek that all those cold lonely days spent in my atelier in Norway and my caravan next to it was worth it. Exhibition in @gallerisemmingsen is on and I am off… for a little while…. 📸 @maartjegrond ...

Five years ago I had the honor to recreate parts of the fantastic fountain «Oksefontenen» in Oslo, close to where both my parents grew up and where I myself spent much of my childhood. The artist behind the fountain is Asbjørg Borgfeldt (1900-1976) and it was with humbleness I did my best to recreate the «lizards» that in my youth still were frightening.
Thanks to @kulturetaten and @johansenmonument for giving me the oportunity to work on one of the most important sculptures of my childhood, as I for years walked past it with my grandmother and was so scared of the lizards 😅 with me on the film is, as mostly when handling difficult jobs, the one and only Christer Karlsen.

My new atelier on the island is almost finished! Today the compressor was installed (thanx to Borge Trykkluftsenter!) and on sunday it will be filled with the FANTASTIC music of @hakonkornstad ! What an amazing building @gustaviandesign ! @pettersenperjohan du er den beste! 🎉 But it would not have been possible without @jvsnekkere building the old way and doing that in an exceptional manner! ...

Today it is 20 YEARS since I completed the work on my first marble sculpture. This was the beginning of a wonderful, but somtimes difficult path - I want to shout out a *THANK YOU* to all who helped me when it was bumpy and all of you who have belived that I can bring something that, in its tiny way, can make a difference in this world. I send you my best thoughts and a lot of love from the island where my wonderful new atelier is being built. ...
