Swedish artist Lars Daniel Rehn's paintings of a growing northern village are simple while also complex. In his own words, he's telling "a story about people living in a land somewhere far far away... You can say they live in a nuclear iceage." In the beginning, the village is more barren. Over time, the villagers come to deal with a series of equally serious and humorous events. A closer look reveals them to be building roads, succumbing to sickness, rallying over rival soccer teams, and even being invaded by aliens.
