Guðný Rósa Ingimarsdóttir was born in 1969 in Reykjavik, Iceland. After her studies at The Icelandic College of Art and Crafts in Reykjavik in the early `90s, she studied at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Visuel de La Chambre in Brussels from 1994 to 1997, and finished her education at the HISK –Hoger Institute of Fine Arts in Antwerp from 2001 to 2004. Today, Ingimarsdóttir lives and works in Brussels but takes active part in the Icelandic art scene. Guðný Rósa Ingimarsdóttir’s works are often presented as installations, with a mix of different mediums, such as sculpture, photography, sound, video, sewing, drawing, collage, and painting.
Ingimarsdóttir produces drawings and paintings with many layers, which she cuts, peels and carves – during or after its making, aiming to get closer to the essence. Every work has its own geometric structure and system, and flirts with the borders of abstraction. At first sight one can often not situate the work within figuration or abstraction. The work builds itself slowly – some works can take up to 20 years in their making – each line traced or erased (removed or not) has equal value – the things that stay are equal to the things gone.
