Artist in Residence – Trayc Claybrook

Trayc Claybrook’s goal for working at Nes is to create visual stories that deal with the experience of being human. To put a hand on an intuition that is difficult to express. To pose the questions, who am I? why am I here? and how do I navigate this life? We all go through pivotal times where we are pushed to our limits and we don’t see a way up or out. But history and mythology tell us we will find the way up, the way out. Icelandic folktales are rich with archetypal heroes, finding their way in a challenging environment.
