Verðandi is literally the present tense of the Old Norse verb “verða,” “to become” and is commonly translated as “in the making” or “that which is happening/becoming.”
The collection of paintings, drawings, and installations shown in this exhibition are aimed at one common theme: the Verdandi concept.
The artist studies the human being and his existential environment through the composition of essential shapes and strokes using symbolic colors. Handling the painting like an alchemical action, the artist plays with the sedimentation of the different pigments by producing the effect of repulsion; the images flow or float over the canvas through different media and paint vehicles.
The use of the strokes is reduced to the essential in certitude, which enhances the expressionism and final feeling of the painting. The choice of one or another element for the paint plays a strong role in evoking feelings from within the artist or its relation to the character that is painted.
Besides the figurative language of the paintings, these artworks can be enjoyed under the abstract values appreciating the individual aesthetic character of its strokes or color stains.
