Get Tarn to Iceland!
I've been lucky enough to be accepted into an Art Residency at
NES studios in the North-West of Iceland in a town called
Skagaströnd in March 2017.
What? Cool! So what's NES Residency?
NES Residency is an international multi-disciplinary art
residency that is housed in a studio which used to be the main fish
processing plant of Skagaströnd. This is the 9th year since its
inception and is one of the largest Residencies in Iceland, hosting
90-120 artists from all backgrounds per year.
What will I create?
Drawings. And lots of them, hopefully!
My drawings are evolving constantly, based around different
ideas and themes. In the Residency I hope to produce works
influenced directly by the foreign surrounding environment. One of
my main goals is to engage the viewer through random associations
between perspective and objects.
I am also interested in drawing from the subconscious, trying to
free myself from artistic convention & everyday thinking. Can
one be purely free when drawing, or is the line or dot you make
How can you help?
I have come to Boosted because I simply can't afford the flights
& living expenses while I'm there. Your help will literally
fund my Residency! I'll be forever grateful.
