Kristín Rúnarsdóttir

Greyout (2015)

A series of works on paper (gouache and inkjet prints) reflecting scale of the mining operation, the aesthetic qualities of the layers of earth exposed by the open pit mines and the giant machinery used to move material in order to reach the lignite layer and to remake the landscape.

Kristín Rúnarsdóttir (b. 1984) is a visual artist living and working in Keflavik, Iceland. Her work finds inspiration in the curiosities of sign systems, rules, and organization. She holds an M.A. from Bergen Academy of Art and Design, and a B.A. in fine art from the Iceland Academy of the Arts. Rúnarsdóttir has held solo exhibitions at the Living Art Museum, Reykjavik 2015; Reykjanes Art Museum, Keflavik 2014; and Galleri Fisk, Bergen 2012.
