The story behind the artwork
Magnus Grimsson, Kristjana's grandfather, fought in the Cod Wars in Iceland, a series of confrontations between the United Kingdom and Iceland over fishing rights in the North Atlantic. Kristjana's spent a lot of her youth in her grandfather's living room, drawing maps and imagining people at sea, and has vivid memories of her grandfather making troller nets, which were fascinatingly gigantic and almost neon green in colour. The artwork 'Calm At Sea', is based on an original oil painting by Willem Van De Velde the Younger, called Dutch Ships in a Calm Sea, and gives a serene base upon which Kristjana can capture her own depiction of life at sea, where the intrepid travellers of the past combine with her vivid artistic imagination.
