Guðrún Einarsdóttir: Paintings
22 April–20 May
Guðrún Einarsdóttir´s exhibition Paintings calls upon the natural elements of Iceland, presenting meditative and impactful works that examine materiality, physicality, and organic forms.
Throughout her career, Guðrún has studied the properties of oil paint, developing a breadth of textures that have come to characterize her work. What results is a unique visual world that references forms of nature, a sort of material landscape on canvas, as the artist puts it. As Guðrún paints, the works lie flat over periods of months and sometimes years. Her way of working is in a way scientific and methodical, yet also inherently instinctive. Guðrún places full trust in the process, organic and dependent on the elements, unique and unexpected. In Guðrún´s paintings we feel distinctly the presence of nature. As if they have grown within and through the canvas, the viewer appears to witness a natural formation, one that is actively growing and shifting as we regard them.
