Heartbeat of the Living Nature

A new-romantic expression of Icelandic landscape.

Arnór G. Bieltvedt talks with Bryndísi Schram


Arnór G. Bieltvedt opened an exhibition in Art Iceland Gallery in Skólavörðustígur 1A. The opening was Saturday the 18th of February 2006 from 4pm - 7pm. Ólafur Grétarsson played sweet notes on the guitar to emphasize the light and living tones of the art work. The exhibition will be open until March 4th.

Heartbeat of the Living Nature is how the artist experiences Icelandic landscape. It is both expressionistic and new-romantic. Strange and exotic flowers growing in the cold Nordic landscape and living with the ever-changing opposites of heat and cold where the air and sea embrace in the wild dance of colors.

The technique Arnór uses in his work is unusual. He mixes different media like charcoal, pen, acrylics and oil on his canvas.

The artist grew up in Iceland and moved early to Germany and the to the United States and is now living in Chicago. He is educated in economics and social sciences, marketing, management and art with specialization in painting.

Arnór has held a number of exhibitions throughout USA and Europe for the last decade and his works can be found on the walls of individuals and public organizations around the world.

Arnór has a homepage at art-iceland.com/arnor-g-bieltvedt.html

The exhibition Heartbeat of the Living Nature will also be on display in the Icelandic Embassy in Copenhagen where it opens March 31st.
