Media: Painting (Soil and Gouache on Linen or Paper)

Iceland 2018

While in residency in The Hafnarborg Museum I made site-specific research trips, engaged with that landscape by exploring soil imprint on paper and linen.

The series was created in multiple visits to The Reykjadalur Valley, around Mt. Hengill, an extinct volcano, which was active 120,000 years ago. I worked at the Klambragil Canyon where I found Geothermal Springs and mud pools boiling over 100 degrees Celsius. I created site-specific paintings with the materials I extracted straight from the ground.
