Ever since Jón Sæmundur started the Dead concept 17 years ago, the skull has been a very important part of his art. Dead water-colors are a series of paintings on paper of a skull/Spirit similar to which Jón Sæmundur painted while performing with his band Dead Skeletons. These are made in his studio in Iceland. They are some kind of a self-portrait as a skeleton, Dead Skeleton.
For me making art is a spiritual process. I catch spirits in the moment and they appear one after another; similar but no one quite the same. They are Spirits, Andar.
