many thanks to those who came, saw and - not
to mention - either purchased some truly unique
art, or began a collaboration to produce fresh
series and the breaking of boundaries yet again...
Truly special thanks to the wonderful people

even more exclamations of gratitude to the wonderful
staff at Litir

and fair prices. The artist salutes you all

section where most unsold works will appear and
remain until they are - well... - sold. Feel free
to head to the contact

will be met with all what haste the artist possesses.
I'd like to point the visitor to the 'F' icon -
on the left of this text - as well as the link to
the "Arkiv.is" artist collect which hosts
some of my work along with some detailed explanation
and would-be art theory that underscores what lies

intrepid visitors and the outstanding SÍM staff
who accomplished the seemingly unachievable); all
focus remains on the current event at Hafnarstræti

growing series can be seen.
a full update to this website soon (as I intend to
include the vast amount of works that have been created
in the last year or so). In the meantime, enjoy some
images and explanations at the following address (tap

- of course - a sample image of Kali (one of the Gorgon
series) that now hangs at the show room mentioned
and new series
begun a newfound direction in Art: it is time to declare
the Cryptogenic style; in a series I commonly refer
to as Blackened ("Sortnun" in Icelandic).
This does not prevent further indulgence and work in
the more 'colourful' works of figurative fantasy and
exploration of the Norse heritage (plenty more coming
there I assure you), but let it be known that the glue
(so to speak) is 'constructivism' as I have found a
deep, personal connection to the constructivist works
of the early to mid last century.
to say - for the time being - I shall focus on developing
"Black on Black" further and would invite
anyone in Iceland to join me at two exhibitions launched
simultaneously. It's madness, but it's Art !!!
will be coming soon enough and do click on the image

had the benefit of sound advice; the leap has been taken
to augment the growing selection of Norse Art with links
to information and background to the many stories and
characters depicted therein. Of course, Wikipedia can
only offer so much and the visitor is encouraged to quest
further to gain proper insights in to the splendid realm
of Norse lore and Sagas.
More series to come...
in the works here and the artist quite ecstatic to announce
the birth of several new series and artforms here in the
studio; to somewhat herald a great change that is about
to befall... All very good and more news as events warrant,
but I advice any viewer to head over to the Series
section of this website to glimpse the first of three in
the 'Sortnun/Blackened' series; much more incoming as the
next two are indeed finished and ready for photography...
Exhibitions, website update
long stretch of things in-between updates and any viewer is
adviced to head to my Facebook
page for more regular news on completed artwork, exhibitions
and what else that comes about.
artwork has indeed been completed, much of what is sold already
and with fresh series and commissions. To say the least, some
of my best efforts are sure to decorate the Artwork and Series
sections of this website. More to be added soon enough and
feel free to scale down below for a selection of images from
my recent exhibition at Gallery Gátt here in Iceland...
has indeed been a while since the last update, but much has
progressed and the art goes ever on and onwards as natural
laws permit. A new and more reclusive studio - this time in
Reykjavik - has been secured and more news following as events
warrant. Let there be art!!!
in progress !m!
to do in the studio and already; the next exhibition is merely
around the corner. The theme should be somewhat centred around
the old gods of the Ásatrú, or Nordic faith. The paintings
are looking quite promising, if I may say so myself...
this space for regular - say, weekly - updates and hold Sunday,
the 21st of June (summer solstice) free if you wish to. See
you soon enough...
there be art !!!
