Paintings in this collection explore the drama of Nordic landscapes. The hills, forests, and waterfalls of Iceland and Norway are often characterized by remoteness and pristine beauty. Filled with emotion and drama, the presentation of these landscapes are also very matter of fact, combining the direct observation of nature with atmosphere and mood to create what some have called “romantic realism”. Paintings in this collection express the intimate relationship between the Nordic people and their environment. Mountains, snow and water, often set against storms threatening on the horizon convey a deep seated sense of affinity with nature.
