Living 2020

SÍM gallerí, Hafnarstræti 16
4.–25. mars, mán–fös kl. 10–16

2020 was a year for introspection and slowing down while living things continue to grow and mutate around us as they do. During isolation and quarantine, artworks were born of visual ideas which also grew and changed during the year. The imagery in Living comes from within a small radius from my place of quarantine—mostly from the area surrounding the Tjörnin pond in downtown Reykjavík. The key works in the show are an unconscious depiction of the organized chaos of life. Included in the show are works made using the gum bichromate, cyanotype and photogravure processes.

I Remember the Mountain / Man ég fjallið

I Remember the Mountain / Man ég fjallið continues the theme of my recent exhibit, Earth Portraits, with the added filter of memory to the mix. The landscape, similar to a human subject, is always changing and is hard to pin down in a moment. Weather conditions, seasons, lighting, natural forces and human interference all have an effect on what is perceived. By reworking an image captured several years ago, it takes on a life of its own, becoming more and more like a dream.

I Remember the Mountain opens with a reception on June 13th, 4-6pm at the Reykjavík Museum of Photography.
