He has also exhibited in various group shows in Europe and the cultural institute Gerduberg in Reykjavík 2012. The watercolours are influenced by the basalt columns work of Richard Serra, "Afangar" in Videy island, located north of Reykjavík, but basalt columns are common in Iceland. Last but not least the coming of spring with its flowers and plants. we Icelanders look forward to spring because the winter is long and dark.
