Andrew Haire, Central Station, billboard location no. 39


Jökulsárlón’ unveils the kinetic energy that radiates from the crisp wasteland of Iceland’s glaciers. The title, which translates as ‘glacial river lagoon,’ is also the name of the deepest lake in Iceland, an icescape of marching icebergs, hooks and twists of lucent ice, and bodies of glassy water.

Haire’s painting is from his series entitled ‘Plastic Landscapes,’ which were produced after visiting Iceland in 2012. His painting is composed from layers of translucent acrylics that blanket each other to build a rich, textured and surreal impression of a landscape that the artist describes as ‘extra-terrestrial.’ Haire has captured the aura of one of Iceland’s natural wonders, a wilderness he has enchanted with flecks and streaks of colour that oscillate in this immaculate tundra.
