Hallgrímur Árnason

Open Screens

Energy, spontaneity and a curious balance of calm and chaos characterize Hallgrímur Árnason’s work. The works examine Hallgrímur´s emotional and environmental states, his reactions to place and time shown through intense colors and forms that spring forth and spread. He allows the unexpected and the involuntary to take over. A thought becomes a movement, an action a thought, and one thing leads to another. We look into the chaotic world of the artist's mind, a relative existence, and let our minds wander, just as we forget our own place and time.
