Hringrásir / Circulation

Project presented at Experiment: Clay and More at Hafnarborg, Hafnarfirði, Iceland.

26 August – 23 Oktober 2016.

Two paintings:

BOG IRON 64,0709, -20,4275 

KAOLIN 65,5014, 21,5549 

Circulation is a meditation upon the practice of landscape painting and material use. Inspired by texture of both the earth and the 3d quality´s many paintings contain.

The project consists of ‘portraits’ of two clay materials – Kaolin and Bog Iron, and marries together the mould making processes of the ceramic world and material use of the painting tradition.

In the process a cast was made of the raw materials on their location, the materials were collected and made into paint. The paint was used to cast the landscape and create a painting or a 1:1 detailed map of the ground or a portrait of itself.

Dimensions: 150x150cm and 10x10cm
