Georg Guðni is a leading contemporary Icelandic artist. He started his artistic career in the 1980’s and since then his native countryside had provided his constant inspiration. He is best known for his large oil paintings but his watercolours reveal a different and important side to his work. In them he explores the spartan Icelandic landscape – the contours of horizon and hills – and the atmospheric sensation it conveys. Through shifting colours he creates a sense of disintegration and endless expanses of view, and these imbue his work with a very special feeling and characterise all his art.
