Wild About You
Tinna Royal explores the upside of consumerism and romantic relationships. Following methods of reproduction, the pop artist gives a new purpose to delicacies. The exhibition “Wild About You” includes none of the delicacies but features new paintings highlighting themes of relationships and action. For the past eight years, Tinna has collected thousands of images from comics during the WWII era in the public domain. At the time, heroism and romance were the main themes where stereotypical views on gender roles prevailed. Tinna’s utilization of the subject matter offers a modern perspective on relationships where issues lying beneath a projected ideal surface emerge.
Tinna Royal (b. 1982) lives in Akranes where she has her studio. She was selected as the honorary artist of the municipality of Akranes 2020
