Island Songs, Ólafur Arnalds

Island Songs, Ólafur Arnalds

27th June 2017

Back in my studio today after a wonderful evening at the UK premier of Ólafur Arnalds beautiful film "Island Songs" last night. My second viewing of the film, which shares the journey of the creation of the album, and just as powerful an experience.

The gift of this album, and the seven pieces of music, continues to nourish my soul and weave and breathe its magic into the ongoing series of paintings.

Working on the paintings last year at the same time as Ólafur's 7 week journey, each weekly Island Songs wove its magic into the paintings, and were, and remain, an integral part of their coming into being and continuation.

Thank you Ólafur, on many levels, for all you share. With much gratitude. @olafurarnalds
