Sigrún Ólafsdóttir

Origin: Icelandic
Medium: SCULPTURE PAINTING DRAWING

Sigrún is experimenting with various materials such as woods, steel, caoutchouc, latex, ink and paper. As diverse as the forms and combinations of materials in use, her art works express the fragility of balance. The icelandic scluptress creates objects that dare the impossible equilibrium
