Frikkx (Fridgeir Scopelitis Eyjolfsson) is one of those artists that wanders across the divides of reality, showing us potential, uncertainties, and other-world imaginings.

 

His creative work can be likened to a glimpse through a door to an alternate realm. This theme plays out in a variety of compositions by the artist, repeatable, but always singular, so we are always shown a different vantage point, and therefore we can explore infinite doors to infinite realms.

 

Frikkx grew up in Iceland surrounded by the rugged wild landscape that is such an integral part of Iceland and everyone that has lived there through out the centuries. That same landscape has influenced the flow and nature of Frikkx’s creative work on many levels.

 

Manipulated photography and the creation of abstraction from that manipulation is a fundamental element of the work. Shifting away from the realism of photography has allowed Frikkx to visualise and experiment with forms that are outside the perceived norm of reality. The work has reached the point in its creative journey whereby it now bears little resemblance to formal photography, it can be called“non-photography”.

 

Frikkx is liberal with regards to the perception and interpretation of his work by others. By not wanting to tie his compositions down to specific definition, he enables confidence which encourages the viewer to use their own imagination when interpreting his work.

 

The artists motive is to bring something new to the world, something fundamentally unique. This is why the work tends to run to small series and editions of one. These small projects are always experimental, and often evolve into further projects.

 

The creative journey is all important to Frikkx, where his work will go from here is an adventure yet to come.
