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.
