Opening an Exhibition on Culture Night in Reykjavík, 24.August 2019

VANISHING – No longer Ok (OK)

Gallerí Korka, Skólavörðustígur 4a, 101 Reykjavík in the City Center of Reykjavík, 4.-6.pm.

I will be happy to welcome you to my opening of the Exhibition Vanishing. The main subject is still the Glaciers which have been a grand interest of mine since childhood. Growing up in Hornafjörður and looking at Vatnajökull every day the first 15 years of my life. I try to pay the Glaciers a visit every year and it makes me sad to see how fast they are melting.

As the last thirteen years or so I work with my “patine au vin” Eggtempera with white wine, and use as much natural ingredients and environment friendly sources as I can. The black color is volcanic ash from the neighborhood and many of the colors I make with crushed stones I have found on my travels around Iceland.
