Kristinn Már Pálmason 1967-
Kristinn Már Pálmason studied at the Iceland College of Arts and Crafts 1990–94 and at the Slade School of Fine Art, University College, London 1996-98 (MFA). Kristinn Már has held more than 20 solo shows and taken part in many group exhibitions. He has been involved in diverse cultural activities; he was e.g. one of the two founders and exhibition manager of the Anima gallery in Reykjavík 2006–08, and a founder and board member of the Kling & Bang gallery. During his career Kristinn Már has experimented with a range of methods and worked in various styles, within the framework of painting and outside it – including abstract, monochrome and figurative work, installations, audio works, interactive works, murals, sculpture, etc. His current style is in many ways the fruit of that diverse approach, both in the material and the ideological sense. His Empty Spot is characterised by abundance; the title references an empty spot in the work, while also signifying purity or peace amid modern-day media overload.
