Exhibition Opening - Ragnar Þórisson: Human Disguise in Gallery-D
The exhibition Human Disguise opens at Reykjavík Art Museum – Hafnarhús on Thursday, 16 March at 17h00.
The paintings by Ragnar are the result of years of experiments where he typically paints people set in neutral surroundings. He displays his models in an ambiguous manner, immersed in an atmosphere of mysticality. Large, multi-layered color fields are mixed together with fine pencil drawing. The works are equivocal, suggesting a subtle movement in time and space, so it seems that the artist is attempting to grasp something other than what is visible to the plain eye.
Curator is Markús Þór Andrésson.
