Icelandic artist ívar Valgardsson's work often reflects the relationship between the natural and the man-made while simultaneously exploring themes of philosophy and ideology contrasted with the physical world. Valgardsson uses home-improvement and do-it-yourself materials to cut against the rarefied nature of art, along the way finding in those materials a full spectrum of ravishing color. His work has been exhibited in solo exhibitions and featured in a number of group shows both internationally and throughout Iceland.
