Do not go roughly into that good night

Margrét H. Blöndal

Margrét H. Blöndal i8

Within this body of work, Blöndal continues her use of pigment and oil on paper while painting in her signature lyrical style. The poppyseed oil permeates the paper, controlling the fluidity of the pigment and creating a translucency around the delicately rendered images. While abstracted, Blöndal’s compositions touch upon the familiar, as the works sensitively explore color and form.

Blöndal approached the exhibition at i8 through a musical lens, likening the installed works to a chord progression within the space. By hanging the paintings at various heights and densities, the artist creates a particular cadence that guides the visitor through the space in a metrical manner.
