Brynja Baldursdóttir: Self Portrait
My art creation derives from my attempt to visualize the inner landscape of humans; the collective human factors and the unique as part of a bigger whole. The artwork exhibited are created with this in mind. The “Self-portrait” series is divided into reliefs and book-art – each ternate in three colors; black, white and golden, as a sum of three sections; body, mind and spirit.
