Ljóshærðar starfsstéttir 

Olía á postulín, 2004-, mismunandi stærðir. Ljósmyndir: Vigfús Birgisson, Raphael Pinho og Birgir Snæbjörn Birgisson

„Verkin ... minna mann á þessar fígúrur í takmörkuðu upplagi sem eru oft auglýstar aftast í fylgiritum sunnudagsblaðanna. Það eru handmálaðar myndir af góðborgurum. Verk Birgis vekja spurningar um samsemd og hreinleika en hann neitar að gefa okkur tilbúin svör.” 

Stefan Bottenberg, London 2004

 

Blond Professions

Oil on porcelain, 2004-, variable sizes. Photographs: Vigfús Birgisson, Raphael Pinho and Birgir Snæbjörn Birgisson

“The pieces ... remind one of those limited edition figurines that are commonly advertised in the back of Sunday supplements. They are lovingly hand-painted depictions of staunch burghers and pillars of the community. Birgisson’s work raises questions about identity and purity, but he resists providing us with any ready-made answers.”
