Sólheimar Culture House will be showcasing the painting “Dans á rósum” by Louise St. Djermoun in September and October. The painting is provided by the Artótek, which is situated in Grófin Culture House.
The Nail is an art exhibition at Sólheimar where one art-piece will be showcased at any given time. This is the 6th exhibition in the series. The art can be bought or rented-to-own where one becomes its owner when the rent has reached the sales price. The buyer (or rentee) of the exhibited art can choose the next one, from the Artótek, to be showcased on the Nail.
Louise St. Djermoun is an Abstract-nature painter. She was born in Reykjavík but she has lived in France for the past 20 years. She has a special technique which she applies to her paintings which includes using her third eye, a photo lens. She says that ever since she was a child in Skerjafjörðurinn, she has been fascinated by nature: the beach, the sea and the rough straws.
María Þórðardóttir, a bookkeeper at Sólheimar, chose the painting for this exhibition. She is fascinated by Louise’s technique and how she works with symmetry. “The painting is powerful and it’s colours beautiful”.
The painting can be rented for 7.000 kr. a month or bought for 230.000 kr.
