Artist in Residence – Verena Romanens

Verena Romanens is an artist from Zurich who works with drawing, painting, and collage, mostly in larger formats.

While in Iceland, she’s drawing inspiration from her natural surroundings – the landscape, clouds, the sky – as well as from Icelandic culture.


Her projects at Nes will gather and express those elements in small pieces, which she’ll take back to Zurich with her. Once there, she’ll give them new life by working them into larger contexts, shapes, or installations.
