Halldór Ragnarsson is the first artist to show his work in Listval’s exhibition series in Norr11. Halldór was born in 1981 and lives and works in Reykjavík. He works mainly with painting as a medium and often uses text in his works where sentences or words are repeated. The large works in the exhibition are characteristic of this approach. The smaller works are characterized by raw wood units, some painted, others untreated, which he then arranges. The material here is repetition instead of words or sentences. When the titles of the works are examined, they create a certain experience and interpretation for the viewer that is fun to ponder.
Halldór Ragnarsson studied art at the Iceland University of the Arts. He has held numerous solo exhibitions and participated in group exhibitions here in Iceland and abroad.
