To Continue our support for emerging artists and our partnership with The Other Art Fair we are interviewing some of the artists showing at the Spring 2013 edition of The Other Art Fair:

1. Is this your first TOAF ? if so why are you exhibiting? If not why are you coming back?Yes, this is my first TOAF. I was looking for European art fairs and a friend of mine spoke me about this event. I think it’s a great opportunity to meet the British public and to show us my artworks.

2. Can you tell us more about your work and what are the main ideas you like to express? Being moderately sensible to abstract art, I choose to take up the challenge and to concentrate on the study of this art, unfettered.

3. How do you start the process of making work ?
Free of all thoughts and protocol, guided by my unique passion, I first chose the photography to begin my apprenticeship. In the tradition of Kertesz work (distorsions and reflections), water (in macro-photographic approach) was my Ariane’s clue. Nevertheless I was not satisfied!
That is why, I decided to take my stylet and to paint in a different way what macro had already transformed and made swing over abstraction : the pixels, the numericals stickings or yet an acrylic work that I would recreate in cutting it up in a virtual reality became my colors and my words.

4. Do you consider the viewer, when making your work ?
Yes, but not at the beginning in order to be influenced. As a result, I would like to make working the imagination of the viewer.

5. What work will you be showing at TOAF ?
I’ll show a selection of 3 series, About Water, Escape and a Vanity Code.

6. What was the most intelligent thing that someone said or wrote about your work? A great control of colors with rhythm.

7. Which artists would you most like to rip off, sorry, I mean appropriate as a critique of originality and authorship?I have no idea.

8. What does you art cost ?
£ 800 for a 80 cm x 80 cm in limited edition of 7.

9. Which art work are you most proud to have created ?
The first of every new serie because it’s open a different artistic direction.

10. Final question if you had $75,000 to buy some art with , what would you buy ? I would buy artworks of Georges Rousse, Shinichi Maruyama and emerging artists.

You Can See ACRYMX at Ambika P3 Marylebone London NW1 April 25th-28th 2013

The Other Art Fair Spring 2013 Artist#10 Fridgeir Eyjolfsson

For some reason I keep on working with identity in my work and misplacement of it, I suppose growing up in Iceland and having lived in different countries in Europe, the feeling of not fitting in has had some subconscious influence on my work.
