Skard works with art that is close to reality.

New forms and qualities of known and everyday material are used as a basis for minimalistic and low-key works of art – performance, sculpture, object, photo, video and land art.

The aesthetics and use of materials can be associated with the Fluxus movement and Arte Povera;

spartan, absurd, playful and down to earth.

Expressions and themes are sober and pragmatic, with roots in country traditions.
