Jóhann Eyfells, a defyingly active 91 year old Icelandic artist, redefines the meaning and purpose of art for the 21st century. Art is no longer a commodity or something that is there merely as a status symbol or to satisfy a superficial aesthetic need. It has a higher more profound purpose, to reformulate human consciousness. It is there to remind humanity of its own eternal infinite nature that goes beyond time and space.
Through Jóhann’s insight and body of work we can begin to catch a glimpse at the infinite and unknowing universe of our own existence…in spite of our own collective tendency toward complacency.
“Complacency is the unwillingness to explore the chaotic unknown and the undefinable, and resigning ourselves to the coziness of the knowable.” Hayden de M. Yates
