Endalaus endir. / Last but still lasting.

Endalaus endir málverksins.

Þegar ég var ungur og var að hefja ferilinn var vinsæll frasi; „MÁLVERKIÐ ER DAUTT”
Ég er ekki sagnfræðingur og ekki sérfræðingur í samsæris kenningum en “endalok listarinnar” er auðvitað ekkert nema staðreynd.
Samt er ungt fólk ennþá að ljúka námi í listaháskólanum þar sem allt er kennt; listrænt og pólitískt kórrétt; þeir fara samt að mála málverk eins og engin sé morgundagurinn.
Það er eitthvert samband á milli hugar, handar og auga, sem gefur af sér einhvern veruleika; sem við köllum málverk, við virðumst hafa áhuga á að skoða þennan veruleika, þrátt fyrir nýja miðla, enda virðast þeir einnig leita að þessari mistík, sem finna má í gömlu miðlunum.

Last panting still lasting.

When I was young and starting the career was a popular phrase; “THE PAINTING IS DEAD”
I’m not a historian and not an expert in conspiracy theory, but the “end of the art” is of course nothing but a fact.
Still, young people are studying at the art academi where everything is taught rigth; Artistic and political correct; they still start painting like we just to do, like there’s no tomorrow.
There is a connection between the mind, the hand and the eye that gives rise to a new reality; Which we call paintings, we are keen to explore this reality, despite new media, as they also seem to intrested in similar mystical approach which can be found in the old media.
