Title: Small world, Iceland
Ívar Valgardsson’s (b. 1954) art is quiet and contemplative, with references to minimalism and conceptualism. Working with materials typically used for home renovation, such as wall paint,
tape, and filler, Ívar questions the interaction between the properties of a work of art and the properties of its setting, which often begin to overlap. In addition,
his interest in the words and ideas we attach to colors leads him to explore how our experience of color in nature might differ from our experience of color in built environments.
„Spill“ are photographs of carefully chosen drops of housepaint which have fallen on sidewalks beneath walls after being painted.
I like the notion that there are no accidents, that all actions are opportunity for a new creation.

72 new images we produced at the museum of which 19 are selected for the artstamp sheet.
The central and enlarged portrait of well known indigenous Australian actor Jack Charles stands out, not just the image but also the life and story of this inspirational and celebrated actor.
The Australian Dough Portraits series marks the 14th country Søren Dahlgaard brings this project to, since the first series where produced at The National Art Gallery Denmark in 2008.

These two new art stamps represents my latest project 'DEEP STORAGE
PROJECT'. Two similar 11 meters tall steel star sculptures was created. One
contains blood and hair samples of 4000 people and is sunk into the Marianas
Trench in the the Pacific Ocean and the other one is empty and placed on
land in the city of Vejle in Denmark. The project is an investigation of
human relation to death and eternity, and art stamp will only add more space
for poetic reflection.

GUNNAR ÖRN GUNNARSSON
LINK TO A MEMORY
GUNNAR ÖRN GUNNARSSON AT ARTSTAMP.DK
Artstamp.dk is pleased to announce four new Artstamp by the Icelandic Artist Gunnar Örn Gunnarsson (1946–2008).
Örn is A self-taught artist who has become one of Iceland’s leading artistic figures nationally and internationally, Örn was discovered by Guggenheim museum curator Edward F. Fry, who was an early champion of his work. Örn´s paintings of the 1980s contrast with the more abstract style of many of his Icelandic contemporaries, including those of his close friend Olafur Eliasson, whose mentor he was. Initially inspired by the nation’s traditional artistic concern with nature and the human connection,
Eliasson writes about his friend, "It was Gunnar’s ability to transform landscape forms, whether symbolic, metaphoric, or naturalistic, that taught me not only to see the world around me but to consider our movement through the landscape as an inseparable part of it." (2009)
Örn lived in Kambur, Iceland, in close contact with the landscape and wildlife that inspired his work so strongly. Örn represented Iceland at the Bienal de São Paulo in 1985 and at the Venice Biennale in 1989. His works are in public collections like, The National Gallery of Iceland, Reykjavik, The Seibu Museum, Tokyo, Guggenheim Museum, New York The Moderna Museet, Stockholm
Örn also exhibitions at Moeller Fine Art, New York in 1985 and 1989 and by Stalke Gallery, Denmark in 1996, 2000, 2004 and in 2007.
Moeller Fine Art shows him again on Art Basel, and Moeller Fine Art, Berlin I 2010 and 2014,

BARBARA ANNA HUSAR
EGG EDITION, 2014
BARBARA ANNA HUSAR plays with the concept of evolution. There is no contradiction in that she is playing with the concept of creation at the same time, with the creative act, which the theory of evolution knows nothing about. She connects nature (evolution) and creation (art) through her search for primary potentials.
In doing so, BARBARA ANNA HUSAR uses the media of animated cartoon, painting, photography, performance, drawing, installation... her flying eggs are embedded in this web along with various other subjects, for instance her objects consisting of interlinked chip pans.
For BARBARA ANNA HUSAR, all this ties in with her on-going major project, started in 2007, a hammock consisting of the umbilical cords of goats from the desert of Sinai. The flying eggs turned up in drawings only last year, very fresh, they have already become fundamental to the further evolution of her inventive games.
Barbara Anna Husar is a visual artist, performer, director and writer from Austria. She studied at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna, at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam, received the Austrian State Scholarship and is Hubert Berchtold awardee. The artist lives in Vienna and has a flock of goats in the desert of Sinai (EG). In Berlin, Beijing, Shanghai and Bilbao she was inter alia artist in residence. Her international activity in the exchange of information between cultures, fields of knowledge and artistic media she pictures with "I am a part, intermediate part and particle accelerator".

Cordy Ryman , born 1971,New York City
Ryman earned his BFA with Honors in Fine Arts and Art Education from The School of Visual Arts in New York in 1997
Ryman’s artwork is characterized by recycled wood and metal painted and reconstructed with sculptural elements, mimicking the traditional canvas in their display. The materials Ryman uses include wood, gorilla glue, scrap metals, studio sweepings, acrylic and enamel paints and other found objects. When working with wood, he often keeps the rough jagged edges visible. This creates a very tactile surface. Ryman alters the surfaces of his artwork to change the appearance but still allows for the character of the materials to be recognized.
His works range from small to large and often interact with the spaces in which they are presented. When Ryman works on a smaller scale his paintings tend to be saturated with paint transforming the nature of the scrap materials he works with. The undulating surfaces of these works push the boundary between sculpture and painting.
