Patrick Huse (born April 1, 1948) is a Norwegian painter and multi media artist. After his debut at the National Art Exhibition in 1970 Patrick Huse studied landscape art and conceptualism during the late 1970,s and early 1980,s. His works incorporate techniques as painting, drawing, photograph, video, wall based text material and objects. His work is described by Matthew Kangas Seattle’s leading critic for thirty years, interprets Patrick Huse’s art in the light of this narrative when he gave a great deal of praise in the Seattle Times about “Rift” in the Frye Art Museum, 2000: “Dark, cloudy and moody, Huse’s pictures are part of a long, gloomy tradition of northern European landscape tradition. In the early 1990,s he started a project titled Rethinking Landscape, a trilogy consisting of the three parts: 1 Nordic Landscape, 2 RIFT and 3 Penetration. The traditional landscape art still plays a role as an artistic reference, but through a series of exhibitions from the mid 1990s and later, he has challenged landscape art in a way which makes his project unique. For many years through his interest for indigenous people and tradition in the Arctic Patrick Huse extensively travelled the north and his work in a period of twelve years resulted in an approach to art through a crossover between art and anthropology. This was concluded in a trilogy called Northern Imaginary which was under production for nine years.

Patrick Huse has worked extensively with larger pedagogical museum art projects connected to Northern issues for many years. Produced books connected to the different projects. Social research in Arctic Canada, Greenland, Iceland and the Nordic countries and cooperated with a large number of academics from several universities. The books are used as text books in academic courses in universities and university colleges. In his entire body of work, Patrick Huse argues the use of elements taken from nature, structures in nature and culture becomes an invitation to associate with working on the relationship – center and periphery, one of the most repeated topics for structuring the geographical relationship.
