Ingólfur Arnarsson: Ground Level: Reykjavik Art Museum, Iceland

3 November 2018 - 10 February 2019 

New works by Ingólfur Arnarsson will be presented in Gallery A in Hafnarhús - Reykjavik Art Museum.  Arnarsson has been influential on the Icelandic art scene ever since he graduated from his art studies in the Netherlands early in the eighties. Drawings have always been an important part of his work, Arnarsson´s drawings are characterised by delicate lines, precision and time. He has also painted on concrete, where heavy, industrially produced units create the base for his dainty colour tones. The exhibition in Hafnarhús´s A-Hall holds new works, precisely executed for the hall space.

His work is never isolated from its surroundings, but always a part of a well-planned installation and the exhibition space. Arnarsson has exhibited his work both in Iceland and abroad, for example in solo exhibitions in Kjarvalsstaðir in 1996 and the respected arts centre Chinati Foundation in USA in 1992.
