For CHART 2021 Þula presented an exhibition by Kristín Morthens. The paintings include narratives of intamacy, separation and boundries interpreted in terms of physical form within abstract spaces that do not seem to belong to this world.
Kristín Morthens' paintings deals with boundaries, intimacy and seperation through narratives of limb-like figures in abstract spaces. These subjects often perform a gesture of almost-touching, reaching out or pulling in, either toward themselves or between each other. The focus of physicality is repeated through layering techniques using materials such as oil, spray paint, dry pastels, sand and charcoal. The contrasting surfaces highlight notions of boundaries and materialism.
