‘Snæfellsjökull’

Acrylic on Canvas – 42 x 59.5 cm

“What for me is curious about this island is not what is above the surface, but what is below” – Jules Verne

Snæfellsjökull is a 700,000 year old volcano in Western Iceland. This glacier topped peak was the entrance to deep into the earth’s core in the 1864 novel ‘A Journey to the Centre of the Earth‘ by Jules Verne. I had the privilege to visit this volcano in 2016 and I was struck by the stark rocky surface; barren and bleak in its stunning wilderness. Layers of paint drip down into the earth’s crust, forming several layers of colour and texture.
