Ívar Valgardsson’s (b. 1954) art is quiet and contemplative, with references to minimalism and conceptualism. Working with materials typically used for home renovation, such as wall paint,

tape, and filler, Ívar questions the interaction between the properties of a work of art and the properties of its setting, which often begin to overlap. In addition,

his interest in the words and ideas we attach to colors leads him to explore how our experience of color in nature might differ from our experience of color in built environments.




Spill


„Spill“ are photographs of carefully chosen drops of housepaint which have fallen on sidewalks beneath walls after being painted.


I like the notion that there are no accidents, that all actions are opportunity for a new creation.
