Artist in Residence June 2013 Akureyri Artists Studio - Gestavinnustofa Gilfélagsins á Akureyri / Gil Society

My art practice has been infiltrated by the constant light, the inscrutability of lore, Icelander’s fortitude and humour, their relations to each other and the land. I am a hybrid of ancestry deeply impacted by the depth and strength of my Icelandic roots, understanding that lava and light are Icelandic character qualities. My exhibition includes works on paper, sculpture, installation and video, each media addressing a different aspect of how I process what I have been learning while living and working in Iceland.
My sensibilities are founded in the ephemeral world where illusive ideas are discovered. Disparate thoughts suggest possibilities I love to explore poetically. Utilizing the multidimensionality of space and time in the realm of my art practice, I challenge conventional thoughts about material use. I am dedicated to sculpture, and every media I engage has a sculptural component.
