Poetry and sketches
those who care to read a little and/or glimpse the path
ahead; tick over to the poetry
section of this growing domain and feast your eyes upon
some lyrical obscurity pertaining to
RÁN's incoming album (whenever it's ready)...
More artwork in the pipes - some nearly completed -
do check out a fresh addition of sketches
heralding a rather unwieldy triptych dubbed "Roots";
long in the waiting and to be offered to any willing
customer upon completion...
Another glimpse from
the small studio...
little tight for space, but comfy and cozy; just the
way I like it... Much to do and more coming up... In
the meantime: Do check the links
section or click the image below to investigatemy daughter's
portfolio... The poor thing grew up with a brush in
her hand; the first canvas completed at the early age
of 2 and now knee deep in creative design; quite the
entreprenour and talented as well... Enjoy her works:
Signed up with Apollo
am pleased to announce my partnership with the fine
people at Apollo Art Iceland, who will handle any of
my sales in the homeland henceforth...
selection is modest to begin with, but rest assured
that there will be fresh pieces appearing there at any
given time as I carefully set my aims at to include
U.S. galleries in the near future.
for Apollo Art: Look no further than the image below,
or bravely click a purposefully and somewhat permanently
placed banner on the right side of this column. Enjoy...
there be ART...!m!
small update; a little late perhaps as the intrepid
visitor is urged lay his visors upon the POETRY
section of this ever growing and multifarious webdomain...
With much going on and hours on end; spent in the studio
each day, I dare promise more updates and news shortly...
In the meantime: Have a wonderful day and stay creative;
in your own particular manner of course...
A first glimpse from
the small NC studio
space fits the size as I work arduously on completing
a long overdue assignment alongside other pieces of
similar weight and girth... It shall be the last of
its kind as the sketchbook awaits attention with greater
projects ahead and some interesting news that I look
forward to announcing when the time is right...
the meantime: Dear viewer... Thank you for your visit
and be safe...
any visitor (especially Gallery owners or anyone with
contacts in the field of Fine Arts here in the United
States or elsewhere) to head to the Biography
section and read, observe and get to know me a little
better... As always; feel free to contact
me with any suggestions and/or critique as I welcome
safe and well...
promised updates and fixes; not to ignore Art and Music
(incoming); we see the first of many tasks completed
as I faithfully present the very new POETRY
section of this website... In the very least - and to
any visitor who lacks abilities in the noble language
of Icelandic - I'd highly recommend Google Translate
as the results can be quite entertaining...
Rock on people
- I salute you...!m!
known to sit still for long; another adventure and nearly
18 months to date my ultimate journey to new grounds; having
left the homeland for the taste of the New World amidst
turning tides of pandemics, war and emerging recession...
show must go on and let there be art, music and more art
as the new studio beckons (small as it is for the time being)
and the energies, wild life and nature serves as muse to
the mind... So much to do and plenty of time to do it with,
but - first - the new website address: NEKRONART.COM
...And here you are...
apologies as quirks abound whereas the bulk of the website
is carefully (and somewhat carelessly) moved to the new
location, but all will function ere the end...
serve curiosity; there is much going on and even more to
be revealed as time passes... Allow the artist to promise
regular updates and artwork as the engine is set at "full
the meantime and if all else fails; please check the creative
design efforts of my first born as she tackles her own talents
with laborious resolve: DTDVINA
over and done with
...And 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 at
SÍM for the kind assistance and hospitality; and
even more exclamations of gratitude to the wonderful staff
at Litir og Föndur for the service, tolerance and fair
prices. The artist salutes you all !!!
said, expect some fresh artwork to appear soon enough as
the studio is cluttered with 'pieces-in-the-making'; some
in colour, others not so much... So much to do.
a something special has begun to appear under the BLACKENED
banner of the Cryptogenic series; a something to be discovered
by the lucky few as time passes under the lessening winter
sun here in the cold, darkening north.
exhibition closing down
Hafnarstræti 16, 101 Reykjavík, Iceland
closing date is indeed set on the 24th of October. Open
every day between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. and a last chance to
see some of these works for a while.
updates: Introducing much of the Blackened/Cryptogenic series
the final week of the exhibition at the SÍM Gallery
upon us (see below for details); there has been some urgency
to add the numerous additions to the Blackened series (Sortnun)
to this interweb domain...
entirely complete; the BLACKENED page does however show
the mainstay of the series (in variable quality with apologies)
and more shall certainly be added as photographs emerge.
edition here and at this time, would be the SALES section
where most unsold works will appear and remain until they
are - well... - sold. Feel free to head to the contact section
if you see something you like. Requests/inquiries 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 before us.
at the SÍM gallery - Hafnarstræti 16, Rvk
Art event behind us (many thanks to the hundreds of intrepid
visitors and the outstanding SÍM staff who accomplished
the seemingly unachievable); all focus remains on the current
event at Hafnarstræti 16, Reykjavík, where
21 pieces of the fast 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 for English in the top corner):
- of course - a sample image of Kali (one of the Gorgon
series) that now hangs at the show room mentioned above:
exhibitions 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 below
to be directed to the event on Facebook:
effort: At Korpúlfsstaðir, Reykjavík -
4th to 6th of October
the 3d of October (opens at 1700 hrs) at the SÍM
Gallery, Hafnarstræti 16, Reykjavík
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
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...
update and more...
