Ýmir Grönvold: The incredible reality of you
The exhibition consists of drawings and paintings made over the past year, the works are diverse in content and subject matter but often in a dialog with each other, other artists and paintings by other artists. The title of the exhibition refers to an important book that is about consciousness, that is what I want to represent and induce in my art. I hope that what I have been creating will inspire others.
Ýmir Grönvold (born 1994) lives and works in Reykjavík. He graduated from Iceland University of the Arts with a Bachelor in Fine Arts in 2018, with an exchange for one semester in KABK, the Royal Academy of the Arts in Den Haag. Most recently in painting, drawing and found material, Ýmir works reveal process, meaning and transformation in brightly-coloured flowers and symbols, that can often be traced back his interest in Tarot and meditation, among other things.
