Iceland: Contradictions

The dark, mysterious, natural beauty of Iceland, its superstitions and magic.

I have just returned from a trip to Iceland which is one of the most interesting and striking places that I have ever visited. I am fascinated by its dark, mysterious, natural beauty, its superstitions and magic. My current project is called Iceland: Contradictions.

I am using a variety of papers and board with a limited palette and mixed media. This will include charcoal, graphite, pastel, ink, gouache and acrylic to portray the dark volcanic textures that contrast with the bright blue and whites of the water and sky.
