Ljós: Paintings and Drawings by Daisy Millner and Rhiannon Inman-Simpson

Rhiannon and Daisy both spent time in Iceland last year taking part in residencies. Rhiannon went in winter and stayed at Hafnarborg Centre for Culture and Fine Art in Hafnarfjörður, a fishing town on the outskirts of Reykjavik. Daisy was there in the summer, staying at Lithus, in the small fishing village of Olafsfjordur in North Iceland. Much of their time in Iceland was spent travelling and walking. The strangeness and vastness of the landscape struck them most; otherwordly forms, intense colour and light, lava formations and brightly coloured geothermal pools. Ljós, the title for the exhibition, is the Icelandic word for light. Though using different mediums, Rhiannon painting and Daisy drawing, these recent works show their specific experiences of Icelandic light. Whilst Rhiannon witnessed the extremes of winter, long hours of darkness and bursts of light, Daisy found herself in continuous daylight, with colours and shapes heightened to unnatural degrees.
