About the 'Ósar og Firðir' series:
“My landscapes spring from the enviroment of my youth in the West Fjords, and they consist in an attempt to create a world on the boundary of imagination and nature, thus they are an extension of my own mental world. My subjects have long been concerned with water: first waterfalls, and later the sea where islands and boats float on the surface, or mountain slopes and spits stretch out into the ocean. The obsessive interest in water in my works relates to my fascination with its transience and transparency, and also has something to do with my fear of water. My works tell a tale of a journey out into the world, where the sublime may be sensed in simplicity itself."
