Sunday December 7th at 3pm there will be held an artist talk with Hulda Vilhjálmsdóttir. Hulda will participate in a guided tour and talk about her works in the ongoing exhibition Lip-Sticks in Hafnarborg.
Hulda Vilhjálmsdóttir graduated from the Fine Arts department of the Iceland Academy of the Arts in 2000 and has since then kept painting as her artistic medium. Impulses and emotions of the mankind are the main themes Hulda’s works as she paints in a very emotional and expressive way. Her works are intense, fast, sincere and created by the burning need of expression. Hulda uses different methods of painting and also writes and does performances. She has participated in numerous of private and group exhibitions in both Iceland and in Denmark.
The exhibition Lip-Sticks is characterized by abundant colour and narrative brio. The exhibition comprises new works by seven artists, all born after 1970. In their works, complex worlds interact, springing from the minds of different individuals, where objects and beings run wild. Creativity is unlimited, and we experience diverse visual worlds as each artist invites us to share his or her own reality. Some of the pieces display a childlike joy in a world of limitless fantasy, while others draw the observer into a mystical world of wonders. Pastiches of the everyday, cunning supernatural creatures, spiritual torment, New Age philosophy and childhood are among themes which imbue the exhibition with enthusiasm and sincerity. The exhibition Lip-Sticks includes new works by Gabriela Friðriksdóttir, Gudmundur Thoroddsen, Helgi Þórsson, Hulda Vilhjálmsdóttir, Ragnar Þórisson, Thorvaldur Jónsson and Þórdís Aðalsteinsdóttir. The curator of Lip-Sticks is Birta Fróðadóttir.
