These paintings are inspired by Icelandic subglacial and marine volcanic eruptions and the peculiar rock formations and not least the molecular building blocks within them. The result is a series of abstract works which reflect all of these elements.

Healing fractures

Healing fractures

2013

One in a series of paintings inspired by the Icelandic rock formation móberg, which forms in volcanic eruptions under glaciers or in water. This particular painting is inspired by the healing and alteration processes which occur long after the eruption has ceased. New minerals form in fractures and strengthen the formation. In most of the paintings of this series some collage is used as well as oils. The collage makes use of specially computer produced molecular and crystal models. Thus the paintings vary in scale from mountain size to microscopic, all in the same picture.

2013

One in a series of paintings inspired by the Icelandic rock formation móberg, which forms in volcanic eruptions under glaciers or in water. This particular painting is inspired by the formation of pillow lavas when magma is extruded in great water pressures under the glaciers. In most of the paintings of this series some collage is used as well as oils. The collage makes use of specially computer produced molecular and crystal models. Thus the paintings vary in scale from mountain size to microscopic, all in the same picture.

2013

One in a series of paintings inspired by the Icelandic rock formation móberg, which forms in volcanic eruptions under glaciers or in water. This particular painting is inspired by the well known iconic mountain of Herðubreiður which is formed in a sub and supra-glacial eruption. In most of the paintings of this series some collage is used as well as oils. The collage makes use of specially computer produced molecular and crystal models. Thus the paintings vary in scale from mountain size to microscopic, all in the same picture.

2013

One in a series of paintings inspired by the Icelandic rock formation móberg, which forms in volcanic eruptions under glaciers or in water. This particular painting is inspired by the rapid cooling of the magma in explosive phases of the eruption and the formation of glass shards (tephra) in the frightening eruption column. In most of the paintings of this series some collage is used as well as oils. The collage makes use of specially computer produced molecular and crystal models. Thus the paintings vary in scale from mountain size to microscopic, all in the same picture.
