This show expresses the visible and the hidden. While living in a small fishing village on the north most coast of Iceland, Edna Emmet’s work immerses the viewer in the dark, rugged, volcanic landscape. During these darkest months of the year, the first paintings in the series rely on volcanic sand to express the longing for the Northern lights and color of the months to come by hiding an image within. The last in the series depict the freedom of the seagulls as they soared about the cold, gray bay. Come and explore the beauty that Emmet uncovered in Iceland’s darkness.
