Information about the event


Exhibition | Colour sample

Thursday July 7th 2022 - Sunday October 2nd 2022

Bergþór Gunnarsson exhibits oil paintings at the library in Árbær.


The exhibition includes a series of paintings in where Bergþór seeks to create a special color palette for each work. He used several widths of adhesive tape and that made it easier for him to work with the image structure and shape creation. After some observation, the size 90x90cm came out best for the abstract approach in the works. According to Bergþór, the work process has helped him to recover from burnout and chronic fatigue that he has been dealing with. His work energy went from about 20 minutes to 2-3 hours a day.

Bergþór graduated with a B.A. degree in art from AKI-Akeademie voor Beeldende Kunst, Enschede, the Netherlands 1996.
