Sigrún Ólafsdóttir

Sigrún Ólafsdóttir (b. 1963) graduated from the Icelandic College of Art and Crafts in 1989 and continued her studies at the Sculpture Department of the Hochschule der Bildenden Künste Saar in Germany.
Movement, dynamism, and balance of form are terms that can be used to describe the aesthetics of Sigrún’s sculptures. As Cornelieke Lagerwaard has noted, her work “can be divided into three separate groups: ‘Baskets’ consist of stacked hemispheres, while ‘Contacts’ can be described as ‘linear sculptures’, and finally, ‘Spirals’ are composed of floating bands that appear to defy gravity and either ascend into space or move diagonally as though seeking something to grasp.”
