This painting is by Svavar Guðnason and reminds me of home. Of all the fields after the harvest and how they look like patchwork.
Today, Vida and I decided to be sophisticated and went to see the art museum in Reykjavik.
On entering a woman welcomed us joyfully and pressed a mobile phone into our hands. Yes, a mobile phone!
I couldn´t be that lucky.
Since I had no idea what to do with such a device in a museum I felt the need to inquire.
Apparently, some of the paintings had a phone number besides them which one could call, were one so inclined and get information about the painting and the artist behind it.
I had the walkman and cd-player version, but the mobile thing was new. It was very funny to see the guests standing apart from each other, all with a phone to their ears. Just funny.
Otherwise the exhibition was fantastic.
For thos eof you that know little about icelandic art I suggest you google the names Kjarval or Erró.
I had a fun day and feel like I widened my horizon.
