Photos by G. Art by Ragnar Kjartansson.
When you walk into the Ragnar Kjartansson exhibit at Luhring Augustine in New York, your first thought is likely to be “WOW!” On display are 144 paintings arranged from ceiling to floor by the Icelandic artist. And that’s just the first part of the exhibit. A video installation is featured in the second exhibition area. The most astonishing factoid about this exhibit is that these 144 paintings were created over a 6 month period in 2009 by the 33 year old artist!
Luhring Augustine is located at 531 West 24th Street and Ragnar Kjartansson’s works are on display until August 13, 2010.
