Art Description

Painting: Acrylic, Gesso and Paint on Canvas.

The Mermaid, La Sirena

What began as a tribute to Gian Lorenzo Bernini's Proserpine transformed into a mermaid, inspired by the fierce bay in Borgarnes that roars before my home and Icelandic legends.
La Sirena has lost her sextant, which drifts away in the swells behind her. She swims in the splendor of Hrongkelsavik bay in Borgarnes, among the plankton and lump fish, also known as the sea owl.

Humbled by nature
This series The Elements - Humbled by Nature is a fusion of styles; abstract and figurative, morphing people I know and places I've lived to create my own mythological archetypes in surreal landscapes. I paint on heavy large linen panels which eventually hang loosely, to evoke the feeling of a tapestry.

The original works were painted using acrylic paints and gold leaf on Italian linen in Piemonte, Italy. The Elements were exhibited at theses galleries:
