Artist in Residence – Liv Valmestad

Liv Valmestad is a painter from Winnipeg and is interested in the visual language of paint— texture, pattern colour and shape. Her works are interested in the “in between.”

The being in between two cultures, as her parents were Norwegian immigrants and her art, which often deals with in between spaces such as the tension between flat, Modernist space and illusionistic scenes, often inspired by landscape.

She has come to Iceland to capture the light and colour of the supernatural surroundings.
