Just Painted 1
In the last few years, there has been a galvanized interest in painting worldwide. The diversity of the work produced is great, with no one direction or tradition taking hold. Iceland is no exception. Artists of all ages, with different styles and approaches, have chosen painting as their medium. Some of this variety is brought together in this exhibition. The intent is to provide a cross section of what is happening in painting in Iceland today. The exhibition will occur in two parts, with Just Painted II opening at Kjarvalsstaðir in late March. Altogether, 200 paintings made by 85 different artists over the last two years will be shown. This is the first time that such an extensive overview of Icelandic contemporary painting is being presented.
