Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

Although abstract in nature, my work is often inspired by the colors, rhythms, and seasons of the Icelandic landscape. My passion is to use the medium of painting to explore new patterns and forms that will lead to new creative discoveries. My paintings pose a series of questions rather than provide clear statements or narratives. This piece thus contains an account of my search for that elusive and ethereal something that can only be discovered through art and the meticulous application of the creative process.

Artist Profile

Hometown: Kopavogur

Based in: Kopavogur

Sigurdur Olafsson is a visual artist living and working in Iceland.

Working within the field of contemporary abstract art he applies acrylic paint to his canvases with large custom-made squeegees, trowels, spatulas, and other unconventional tools. Through an accumulation of spontaneous, reactive gestures he composes striking, multifaceted works with intriguing color combinations and a mathematical twist that explore the boundaries between order and chaos, faith and uncertainty.

Olafsson is a graduate of The Icelandic College of Art and Crafts. His work has been exhibited in various institutions in Iceland and his work is held in public and private collections in Iceland and in private collections in Europe, Canada and the USA.
