dearest all,
As of the beginning of June 2011, I am no longer posting to this blog. It will stand as a record of my time in Iceland, sure, but if you want something that is getting updated, head on over to the small blue cat.

dearest all,
the joint exhibition at korpulfsstadir went very well- good turnout for a relatively remote location, and we got really positive feedback. that might just mean that there are a lot of nice people, but i like to think that it actually was good. [nothing against nice people.]
the space; large, dark.


dearest all,
i'm not usually the boasting sort, but, my girlfriend just won a pretty awesome and prestigious award for her senior show; sp  a  c e.
i can't say that i was surprised, but i can say that i am incredibly excited.
congratulations, jean, you are pretty darn swell.
if you are curious about the show, you can see these most excellent etchings come to life on her blog; the dirty cabinet. i'd recommend you check it out, and if you see jean around, i'd recommend a big old high five. and a hug. and maybe a head massage, if you are any good at that sort of thing.
with more enthusiastic regards than usual,

undur og ógnir

undur og ógnir,

upcoming exhibition

dearest all,
i know that very few of you will actually be able to make it to this exhibition, especially with such short notice, but i think it is going to be a good one.

with warmest regards,

more of the peninsula

dearest all,
in this post there is more of the strange peninsula. chiefly the second day of the one-and-one-half day trip. i hope that you enjoy this list of photos.
a bit of sun. you can rest assured that it was bracketed by rain and hail

snæfellsnes. the re-realization that i am not in ohio

dearest all,
it has been some time since i've last had anything interesting to share with you. the last few weeks have been chiefly dedicated to a single slow moving project, and that doesn't lend itself to very good stories of adventure. [unless of course, you like very boring adventures.]

a cairn silhouetted against a curious sky.

but, i just got back from a trip out into the weirdness of iceland, a trip that i was not expecting, but am hugely glad to have been a part of. we travelled to snæfellsnes, a fancy peninsula on the west coast of iceland. read on for more photos, and maybe a story or two.

the dead. and the dying.

i went to the cemetery yesterday, thinking that it would be a peaceful place to go. a place to collect my thoughts. i wasn't exactly right, but not wrong either. [also, some new work that will probably be ruined eventually.]
