Erna Mist

 
 

Paintings by London-based artist Erna Mist (b. 1998, Iceland) feature subjects from western rituals, modern clichés and topical stories. Depicting human figures in dreamlike scenarios, Mist uses allegory and historical events to engage with the cost of wealth, prisons of power, and the allure of getting lost in the maze of the mind. 

“Fundamentally, my paintings are attempts to capture today's dystopia into a work that is both unsettling and familiar, prompting an audience to reflect on their own complexities of contemporary life." 

-Erna Mist
