Guðný Rósa Ingimarsdóttir

She studied at the Icelandic College of Art and Crafts in Reykjavik, in the early 90s and then at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Visuels de La Cambre in Brussels, from 1994 to 1997. She finished her education at the HISK – Hoger Institute of Fine Arts in Flanders, from 2001 to 2004. Today, she lives and works in Brussels, where she is represented by represented by Irène Laub gallery, while still being active in the Icelandic art scene. Guðný Rósa Ingimarsdóttir's works with paper, thread and various water dissolvable materials. The artist produces drawings and paintings made up of several layers, which she cuts, peels or carves, before or after assembling them, aiming to get closer to the essence of creation. Each of these unique pieces has its own geometric structure and exists on the border between abstract and figurative. The work builds itself slowly, sometimes taking years; each line traced or erased has equal value, the remaining elements have the same strength as those removed. Her compositions convey rhythm and silence. Her methodical and meditative work process that takes place inside her studio extends into the exhibition areas, transforming them into breathing spaces.
