Ívar Valgarðsson

Ívar Valgarðsson býr og starfar á Íslandi. Verk hans endurspegla oft samband náttúrunnar og hins manngerða umhverfis en kanna jafnframt heimspeki og hugmyndafræði andspænis hinum efnislega heimi. Ívar notar m.a. húsbygginga- og viðgerðarefni sem andstæðu við upphafið eðli myndlistarinnar, um leið finnur hann í þessum efnum margbreytilegt litróf umhverfisins. Verk hans hafa verið kynnt á fjölda einka- og samsýninga bæði á alþjóðavettvangi og á Íslandi.

Ívar er kynntur af Galerie Kim Behm.com

English

Ivar Valgardsson lives and works in Iceland. His work often reflects the relationship between the natural and the man-made while simultaneously exploring themes of philosophy and ideology contrasted with the physical world. Valgardsson uses home-improvement and do-it-yourself materials to cut against the rarefied nature of art, along the way finding in those materials a full spectrum of ravishing color. His work has been exhibited in solo exhibitions and featured in a number of group shows both internationally and throughout Iceland.
Ivar is represented by Galerie Kim Behm.
