Ašrar upplżsingar

My staple medium is the fall-out from volatile, short-lived processes that run their course and leave behind them a chronicle of events that are dislocated by the passage of time.

The large-scale ice-melt works operate somewhere between sculpture and drawing. Really the flattened remains of defleshed objects in the round, they allude to the paradox of the material world, and draw as their primary source from the metaphysics of landscape. Made from ice, but often shattered into explosive configurations suggestive of volcanics and seismic collision, these ultra-heavyweight drawings take on aspects of the Icelandic terrain: flood, faultline, bedrock and glacier sit on the paper surface as rusting iron fossils pressed flat by time and gravity.

The massing and unravelling of nature“s architecture, as an endless spiral of collapse and rebirth, is of interest to me first and foremost as an intensification time. Central to the ice-melt process is material change and transformation, as solid and void exchange roles. However, experiencing the work has inevitably been conditioned by our growing realisation that the earth“s systems may be breaking down, spear-headed by the shrinking of the ice-caps. The ghost-presences of extinct forms stranded on the surface of the drawings, therefore, increasingly becomes a contemporary commentary.

Iron, the material at the heart of the Industrial Revolution - and of humankind“s claim on the land by conquest or cultivation - is, in Iceland, the medium that breaks down the landscape from within. As the chemical weak link in the basalt, it“s the stuff that brings the mountain crumbling down onto the plain as oxidised scree and dust. In its rusted state it“s also the stuff of obsolescence; of things that have had their time.The pools of iron space on the surface of the drawings acknowledge a distant geological past, but also a permanent state of change - now itself assuming a synthetic dimension - offering, perhaps, an intimation of unsettling times to come.


žessi stóru ķslistaverk eda ķsžrykk liggja einhversstašar į mörkum höggmynda og teiknilistar; unnin śr ķsblokkum og jįrnlitarefnum er smį saman brįšna ofan į pappķrin. Viš brįšnunina falla śt efni sem minna helst į jaršvegsleifar eša steingervinga mótaša af tķma og žyngdarafli. Ryšlituš ķ mörgum blębrigšum, en sumstašar svört og sumstašar blį.

Įferšaržykku listaverkin bera sterkan svip af atgangi ķslenskra nįttśruafla og stöšugum umbreytingum landsins; flóš įnna yfir eyrar og sanda, hopandi skrišjökla og jökulöldur, hreyfingar jaršskorpu og berggruns. žau endurspegla landiš sem bęši gefur frį sér allt efni og sżnir.

Byggingarlist nįtśrunnar er rakinn ķ sundur. Vafningurinn brotnar nišur og endurfęšist aftur meš tķmanum. Breyting veršur į efninu sem sundrast, sameinast, umbreytist og hlešst aš sķšustu upp sem misžykk setlög jaršefna og lita.

Ķ listaverkunum veršur mašur įžrefanlega var viš žį óafturkallanlegu žróun, aš innvišir jaršar og nįttśru eru smį saman aš brotna nišur; jöršin hlżnar og jökulkįpan brįšnar, žynnist og hopar. Dreggjar lišinna tķma - žess sem einu sinni var - reka į land į yfirborši listaverkanna; varšveitast žar og öšlast nżtt lķf ķ samtķmanum.
