About the artist:

Jóhanna Kristbjörg Sigurðardóttir
born 1982 in Reykjavík, Iceland, lives and works in Ghent, Belgium. Graduated with a BA in Fine Arts from the Iceland Academy of the Arts in 2008 and a Master’s in Fine Art from the Faculty of Fine Arts of the University College Ghent, KASK in 2013. Jóhanna is current candidate laureates at HISK (2014-2015), The Higher Institute of Fine Arts in Ghent. Jóhanna’s recent works are under her hat / terms / ism [Neo] Constructiv-Emotionalism where she composes different layers of medium through her abstract visions, emotional approach and repetitions.

Combining colors and forms Jóhanna creates a personal visual language commenting on painting and sculptures alike. These classic mediums merge into one another forming an abstract poetic expression that eludes definition. A physical rhythm and mindful frequency runs through her work as certain forms and colors remerge in different situations. Hers is a living language that keeps growing and evolving; each new installation rising from previous ones and each new piece expanding the borders of her expression.
