Volcanology is a series of artworks produced in response to the volcanic geology of Iceland. The artworks were produced whilst on a residency as part of the Frontiers in Retreat programme in 2016, and were later exhibited at Skaftfell, Seyðisfjörður, in 2017.
In volcanic landscapes, an igneous sheet intrusion is formed where a new mass of molten magma enroaches along planes of weakness in older rock. When it cuts into another unlayered mass, or across layers, it is called a ‘dike’. When it is formed between layers, it is called a ‘sill’.
The Volcanology series imitates these processes by intruding newer material into older texts, specifically excerpts from the Austurand newspaper and the Saga Íslendinga.
A selection from this series was originally published in the Towards a Frontier book, which was produced as a Corbel Stone Press Art Edition in 2017.
The original artworks are now for sale for the first time, produced in an beautiful edition comprising a black card enclosure featuring the Corbel Stone Press sigil.
