Pál Guðmundsson Art Museum in Húsafell

Paul says that he sees images in the rocks and that he often does not have to do much to make the images visible to others. These can be trolls, ghosts, occultists, animals and humans who hide and attract. He makes both rock prints and swell prints as well as splitting rocks to find hidden images inside them. These stones he calls rock sandwiches, but they can be of all shapes and sizes.
