Lava Landscape (Hekla) by Ragna Róbertsdóttir consists of black lava from Hekla volcano, presented in a lacquered box. For decades, Róbertsdóttir has sourced natural elements from Iceland and incorporated these materials in large-scale wall installations. Róbertsdóttir applies lava rock by tossing it at an adhesive area on the wall; she then delicately rearranges the small rocks within the composition. While she confines nature neatly within the boundary of a rectangle, Róbertsdóttir achieves a visual variance that conveys energy and motion, as if harnessing the vitality of the volcanic process.  

These edition works are 20 x 20 cm (7.87 inches square) in size. The work is installed by hand to the wall and is sized 20 x 20 cm. Instruction for installation are included in the box; adhesive is not included.
