How does one begin?
Where does one begin, when there are no beginnings, no endings?
There are places which capture one’s imagination, places which inspire streams of words and metaphors.
And then there are places which capture you, leaving you humble before such raw, majestic feats of nature.
One’s soul mingles and blends with the sweeping mountains, the strength of water, the cackling and crackling of glistening icebergs, the tenacity of blossoms, the cries of seabirds and fjords welcoming thousands of wild, white swans.
And red. Always red. So much of red. A sign of life, of survival, of endurance and perseverance to overcome.
In more recent times, it has not only been the wild nature that Iceland has dealt with; the financial crisis was crippling for this small, proud nation. From the ashes of economic meltdown, so much has been learnt. Iceland’s pristine landscape, sprinkled with volcanoes, and glaciers, its unique wildlife and flora, its educated population and overall safety throughout the country, makes it increasingly appealing for foreigners to visit.
Olof Bjork, more widely known as Loa, is one of the most dynamic artists of this Northern nation. Participating in different artistic projects, such as Make, Loa’s energy and love of her country and art is contagious. Internationally acclaimed, her art work may be found in poetic publications to hanging in the most exclusive of private collections.
