Iceland-based artist Anne Herzog recently opened her solo show at Gallery Fold. The exhibition showcases experimental paintings of Snæfellsjökull, created mostly with wax, completed 2011-2013.
Herzog (b.1984) received an MFA in cinema from the University Pantheon Sorbonne, Paris, and an MFA from the Nantes School of Fines Arts. She has exhibited widely across Europe and the U.S.
Her work focuses on the origins of the universe and concerns “volcanoes, amphibians (creatures mediating between water and land, linking periods of time between prehistoric times and age present), strange attractors and fractals,” as stated in a press release from the artist.
Herzog’s work in Iceland concerns Snæfellsjökull glacier and the central theme of trying to “find the center of the earth in Iceland at the point of the volcano.” She has been interviewing people who live just below the glacier since 2004.
