Omar Thor Arason


Omar Thor opens his second solo exhibition Resolution in gallery Phenomenon with new works and work in process. The artist uses the parallel gallery space as a studio and invites visitors to witness a work in progress during the exhibition opening time. 

Omar Thor Arason (b. 1979) is a Reykjavík based painter and sculptor. He was raised in the U.S, Iceland, and England, and later lived in Norway and Denmark before moving back to the USA in 2001. In the fall of 2023 he moved back to Iceland to pursue his career. He received his BA and MA in studio art at CSU Sacramento, and completed his MFA at Stanford university in 2017. In recent years he taught at CSUS, Stanford, and Sierra College. His work explores the intersection of theoretical physics, psychology, religion, mythology, and morality. His paintings tend to align with the Northern European figurative tradition with a tendency towards surrealism
