Arna Óttarsdóttir – Everything is great

 

Arna Óttarsdóttir
Everything is great

14.03.19 – 28.04.19

Opening 14th of March at 18:00

Welcome to Arna Óttarsdóttir’s solo show Everything is great at The Living Art Museum, 14th of March from 18:00-20:00.

“Coral, salmon pink, hospital pink, crabapple jelly, pale, blush, shrimp cocktail, rose, rosy, dawn, dusk, sweet, sweetheart, sunrise, sunset; Arna colours her words. Soft, hushed tones of pink fade and sharpen on these works, and cultivate warm metaphors throughout the exhibition: rolls of skin, food at fancy parties, tenderness, rawness, insides, outsides, medicine, nostalgia, arousal — all things are tickled pink. Aside from historical reference or connotative gender association, the artist’s choice of colour and materials feels subconscious, arriving out of intuition and feeling. Everything Is Great is a soft palette that offers different shades of meaning.”

– Excerpt from Becky Forsythe’s exhibition text

Arna Óttarsdóttir ’s (b.1986) practice explores the traditional methods of the loom, creating elaborate tapestries. The visual source derives from her sketchbooks, where she does not select the final motif based on refined finish, but rather on the possibility of future exploration.
