Tóti Ripper on the West Wall

October 23, 2021 – January 3, 2022, West Wall gallery, Skaftfell Bistro

Opening times are the same as for the bistro. 

Þórarinn Andrésson (b. 1968), or Tóti Ripper, was born and raised in Seyðisfjörður and is closely involved in the local art scene. When Tóti was introduced to painting in 2009, he did not wait to be handed a paint brush but started applying paint to canvas using pieces of paper. This same intensity has characterised his practice, where he immerses himself into the canvas without thought or intention. Abstract landscapes and figures appear without notice as a result of profound concentration. Surroundings and moods blend together, creating colourful forms inviting different perspectives. The works presented on the West Wall gallery give a glimpse into recurring themes in Tóti’s work throughout the last 12 years.
