Brynhildur Thorgeirsdóttir

Brynhildur Thorgeirsdóttir (b. 1955) studied at the Icelandic College of Art and Crafts, the Orrefors Glass School in Sweden, Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam, and the California College of Arts and Crafts in Oakland, California. She now lives and works in Reykjavík.
Working in concrete, glass, sand, and cast iron in mostly neutral colors, Brynhildur creates stark and rugged sculptures that refer to stylized landscape features, utilizing hard lines and geometrical forms that manifest solidity strength. Some of her works are incorporated into actual landscape itself. Brynhildur describes her solid rebar concrete block “mountains” as “the environmental art of the future.”
