Sigurdur Gudmundsson’s (b. 1942) work is difficult to separate from the energetic, humorous, intelligent artist himself. His prolific and highly individual body of work includes photographs, novels, and giant replicas of chocolates in stone, metal, and lacquer. Since the 1960s, his varied and at times seemingly cacophonic achievements have gradually grown into an oeuvre that is also vigorous, succulent and original. Gudmundsson is one of Iceland’s most international artists, with homes and studios in Holland, Iceland and Sweden, and recently in Xiamen and Beijing. He has exhibited widely in Europe and has had commissions for major public works in the Nordic countries and in Central Europe.
