The Safn Series are gouache paintings over photographs taken from a 2005 visit to the Safn Gallery in Reykjavik, Iceland. The Safn Gallery housed, at the time of my visit, the private collection of Petur Arason and Ragna Robertsdottir. The gallery was located in an early 20th Century wood frame house. The paintings on the photographs are scanned and printed at a large scale to emphasize the material qualities of both the paint and the photographic surface.
