Here are some images from our group show, SKIPTI / SWAP at the end of the residency at SÍM. On Monday we installed the show, had the opening, followed by a picnic in the garden, and de-installed the show. Then I had to pack and say my goodbyes. What a day!
Also, in addition to the drawings I made at the residency, I worked on a couple of photo-based projects and along with many of the other artists, became quite the collector of maps, stamps, postcards (new and vintage) and objects from the land such as shells, stones, sea glass, lava rocks and the like.
On Sunday I did a photo shoot of one of the Amelia Earhart islands in the Icelandic landscape set against the sea. Here are a few images from that shoot. I wonder what they’ll become when they grow up?
I am, once again, so grateful for this phenomenal residency and the opportunity to see breathtaking sights in a remarkable country, make work unimpeded, and become friends with such a fantastic group of artists.
