About the artist
Icelandic-Norwegian artist Anna Marie Sigmond Gudmundsdottir is renowned in the North for her multimedia drawings, paintings, installations, and public murals. Her solo exhibition Landscape Enclosed, opening at Berlin’s Gallery Gudmundsdottir on 19 March 2022 showcases her characteristic attention to disciplined line work: each line in her large-scale pieces is meticulously painted freehand.
Sigmond Gudmundsdottir draws inspiration from the way lines (in many forms) mark out boundaries, referencing an array of muses, such as
“...tracks in old asphalt, plow tracks in fresh spring soil, digital prints in underground bunkers, storms, rocks, maps, bushes, fences, walls, phobias, coercion, liberation and questions.”
Sigmund Gudmundsdottir utilizes the canvas to explore how lines carve out the spaces that shape our lives, be they physical, metaphorical, aesthetic, spatial, or temporal.
The Icelandic-born gallerist Gudny Gudmundsdottir is creating a platform in Berlin with an emphasis on female artists from the North. Gudmundsdottir, originally a classically trained violinist and a musicologist, has a special interest in the intersection of visual arts and contemporary music which can be noticed in her selection of artists, many of whom work with performativity as their central praxis. Gallery Gudmundsdottir, the Embassy of Iceland in Berlin, Icelandic Art Center and Inspired by Iceland closely cooperate to promote Icelandic contemporary art in Berlin.
