① Artwork:

Hofn 2

This painting has a subtle, prismatic surface that appears to be in a constant state of flux. Like sunlight washing over a landscape, it can appear different in changing light. The painting is named after the landscape of Hofn, a small fishing town in Iceland. To create this work, the artist used layers of oil paint, wax and silicone. Its mirror-like surface allows viewers to imbue it with their own latent emotions as the painting refracts and even peers back.
