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…

A portrait of Fredrik K.B. made by Felixfilm. In this video Fredrik tells about the origine of his quest of sculpting stone and what still drives him.

The perfect photographer: @lpjonassen - in between filming he jumps in and helps when he sees that this is needed. I am looking SO MUCH forward to share the film documenting this very special placing of this very special sculpture/music instrument, but while waiting for Lars Petter to work his magic with his collected material I wanted to share with you what an amazing resource he is! #greatestphotographerever #gjallarhorn ...

Sharing an exhibition with @peterskovgaard_arts in wonderful Galleri Hervold in Hamar! Amazing combination of art and heart warming to get so good response and see how many people appreaciate the works of art. It makes me humble and inspires me to go back into my atelier for the following, lonesome work period. #sculpture #hamar @gallerihervoldhamar #kunst #skulptur ...

Selene (sculpture to the right, goddes of the moon) and her sister Eos (greek goddess of the dawn) carved in anorthosite; a rock only found in big qantities on two places: the west coast of Norway and on the moon!
A very interesting rock, as we still do not fully understand how it is formed… The sculptures are now placed in front of Hotel Continental in #oslo #anorthosite #skulptur #sculpture #art
