ICELAND IS SO CERAMIC

– a retrospective of Steinunn Marteinsdóttir's works

 

Steinunn, who lives and works on her art at Hulduhólar in Mosfellsbær, has had a long and prosperous career as ceramicist in Iceland. She is renowned for her elegant yet various contributions to Icelandic ceramic arts. In her first solo-exhibition in 1975 she introduced Icelandic landscape motifs to the ceramic field, with enormous sculptured vases and ceramic wall plaques. Quite unpredictable in her style, her vast body of work bears witness to her indefatigable exploration of techniques and limits, in both material as well as formal language and decoration.

 

Opens Jan 9, runs until Feb 28 2016
