Guðrún Nielsen

Um listamanninn

Gudrun aligns herself with a modernist-based formalism with minimalist overtones. Producing large-scale sculpture in a variety of media, Nielsen uses geometrical forms which reflect elements of balance and movement. Drawn to clear and harmonious proportions, as well as cultures, elements of her practice echo Japanese attitudes to mass and shape. Gudrun Nielsen graduated as a sculptor in 1989 from the Icelandic College of Art and Crafts. She studied at Chelsea College of Art and Design London 1990-1992 and graduated with an MA in Art in Architecture from University of East London 1995. Based in Reykjavik, Iceland, Nielsen has exhibited extensively, with selected and invited exhibitions few: Reykjavik, Berlin, London, Paris (2019); CHANGES a solo exhibition SÍM gallery, Reykjavík (2018); SKULPTUR an RBS exhibition of contemporary Nordic three-dimensional practice in London (2015); Þorfinnstjörn, Hljómskálagarðurinn Reykjavík (2014); Edsvik Art Gallery, Sollentuna (2012); Harold Martin Botanic Garden, University of Leicester (2005); A one day solo exhibition Millennium Dome, London (2000); A Festival of Scandinavian Design, the Design Museum, London (1992). The environmental installation The Mountain series, 2014-18 of recycled materials influenced me by the location of my studio in Reykjavík, on the site of Iceland’s leading providers of environmental management services and clean energy.
