Luhring Augustine

Ragnar Kjartansson 
Art Basel Viewing Room
March 20-25

For the inaugural Art Basel Online Viewing Room, Luhring Augustine is pleased to present a selection of works by Ragnar Kjartansson that highlight the artist’s ongoing preoccupation with notions of the Romantic landscape. Inspired by the dramatic natural environment and panoramic views in his native Iceland, depictions of landscapes feature prominently throughout the artist’s oeuvre. Following in the artistic tradition of illustrating the picturesque and sublime, this selection of Kjartansson’s paintings and videos convey his passion for portraying the subject’s beauty as well as its banality.
