acrylic on canvas
The inspiration came from a recent trip to Iceland experiencing continuous daylight and dynamic volcanic landscapes. While touring, the earth cracked open giving birth to the world's newest volcano spewing forth red hot lava. 𝘸𝘸𝘸.𝘦𝘭𝘢𝘪𝘯𝘦𝘢𝘳𝘵.𝘤𝘰𝘮. @𝘦𝘭𝘢𝘪𝘯𝘦_𝘤𝘭𝘢𝘳𝘧𝘪𝘦𝘭𝘥_𝘨𝘪𝘵𝘢𝘭𝘪𝘴𝘦𝘭𝘢𝘪𝘯𝘦 @𝘨𝘪𝘵𝘢𝘭𝘪𝘴.𝘤𝘰𝘮
The artist's experience is masterfully distilled into a vivid interplay of colour and light, almost forming textures that breathe depth into a seemingly flat surface. The composition is harmoniously balanced, enlivened by unexpected splashes of vibrant color. Tiny shapes in the middle of the composition draw the viewers into the artwork. It is as if the piece comes alive, erupting like a volcano, exuding a sense of energy and vitality. Captivating.
