Ásdís Spanó (b. 1973, Reykjavík, Iceland) creates paintings were she explores the various depictions of rest and movement on a two dimensional plain. Her ideas come from observing the simplicity of organic form found in nature and imagening the explosive energy that can lie beneath the surface.
The merge of divers landscapes, informal and formal settings draws the viewer closer and into a world of expressive but cognitive existence. Ásdís reflects on questions about the relation of chaos and discipline and finds ways of expressing and uniting the two using organic and geometric forms.
