Four New Exhibitions Open at Start Art

Four new exhibitions opened at the Start Art Gallery in Reykjavík this week by four different artists who work in various media to express their views and emotions, including paintings, sculptures, textual works, photographs and drawings.

In “Cityscapes,” artist Rósa Sigrún Jónsdóttir expresses her thoughts about cities. “Coming to a strange place I usually start by looking at a map. My fingers trace the lines of the map trying to unlock its world, a world that has its own special laws of beauty and order.”

Edda Thórey Kristfinnsdóttir’s exhibition features people who are constantly moving both in a literal and metaphorical sense. “The human being is constantly traveling on his journey through life. […] We can’t always control the journey.”

“Perfect (as in Reality)” is the title of Hildur Margrétardóttir’s exhibition in which she displays her ink drawings, inspired by the British tabloid press where the “perfect reality of the rich and famous” is demonstrated.

Peter Anderson’s exhibition is entitled “Third Thought” and features his paintings which he made with “dynamic strokes coming from the whole body.” Anderson is also a dancer and choreographer with the Iceland Dance Company.

All four exhibitions will run until April 2.
