Joint presentation of paintings, drawings and edition of the Centre (book and portfolio).
Sigurdur Arni Sigurdsson, Icelandic young painter, tackles figurative painting without previous speeches, nor on the “painting–painting” nor on a so-called return to representation. His subjects are extremely simplified archetypes (lakes, clouds, animals) or abstract forms (balls, circles, ovals). […] These simplified objects float on a monochrome surface, often cold and bright, suggesting a boreal atmosphere, that they penetrate, creating a confrontation between flat space and the illusionist space. The schizophrenic space and shapes in suspension arising from these pure and transparent surfaces transport us to imaginary tales and legends. (Véronique Bacchetta, extract from the press release)
