I am fascinated with the connection Icelanders have with nature, their colorful heritage, their folklore, hidden people, elves, the Norse Gods. Iceland is a nation of great storytellers, and I wanted to work on a group show which addresses an aspect of the Icelandic heritage, while at the same time, viewing it through the lens of a foreigner who has had little exposure to those stories. I invited four Icelandic artists and four artists from the U.S. to participate.  I hope Odin's Eye builds an inspirational bridge between Americans and Icelanders as artists visually interpreted Norse mythology through various mediums.

Seduced by a sparkly necklace, Freyja slept with 4 disgusting dwarves to obtain the jewels. She cries 22kt gold tears in longing for her wandering husband, searching for him in a magic chariot drawn by grey cats.

Shapeshifters Loki and Freyja meet on a path. Freyja scolds Loki for returning her magical falcon cloth in poor condition. Loki thinks to himself that he will try to lift her necklace again.
