Art Description

Painting: Acrylic, Stencil on Canvas.

Series of paintings inspired by Icelandic Glacial Rivers - the title "Annihilation / The combination of a particle and its antiparticle" Series of paintings inspired by Icelandic Glacial Rivers - "Annihilation / The combination of a particle and its antiparticle".
This series is about transforming of glaciers into the water and that process can be beatiful and inspirational.
These rivers are strongly affected by the highly-seasonal water supply from the glacier and by the large supply of sediment that arrives at the glacier terminus. This high sediment supply often makes them steep and braided.

Turquoise color of the water: The silt is created when rocks underneath the surface of the ice are grinding from the movement of the glacier. The rock flour is very light and stays suspended in the lake water for a long time. The sunlight that reflects off this rock flour is what gives the lakes their spectacular turquoise blue or green colour.
Lines of the rivers has purelly abstract shape, formed by nature. Combination of colors that we find in nature is amazing and always inspire me. I used copper, gold and turquoise color, as well as gloss medium to play with matt and shine surfaces. Copper color of the ground near the hot springs and rivers is unreal. Combined with contrasting turquoise color of water even better!
