I have always felt a need to artistically dissolve my environment or at least to transform it into something less rigid, lighter, more ambiguous.

In Icelandic nature I found, in contrast to my country of origin, something pristine, less defined, less determined. As if everything around me was vibrant, in process of transformation and me being a part of it. This perception is present in my interpretation of Icelandic landscapes, which is characterized by a pictorial representation of something multilayered, ambiguity, transparency and movement. In this context, the exploration of options in linear representation plays a major role. While having mostly used graphic techniques so far, this exhibition will show paintings as well.
