A Portfolio: Erna Mist

Must read

For today’s A Portfolio, we look at the works of Icelandic painter, Erna Mist. She will be part of an upcoming group show at 1969 Gallery, and we thought it would be a good idea to share her mysterious, darkly contemporary depictions of modern life and nature. 

“A painting can be a door leading backwards, a window facing inwards, a mirror reflecting your innermost fears and desires. By bending the rules of nature without forsaking the gravity of reality, a painting can overcome the boundaries of dream and actuality; fantasy and memory; nightmare and normality. In other words, paintings are x-rays of experience.” —Erna Mist
