Gígja Reynisdóttir is an Icelandic artist living in Bergen, the Netherlands.
She graduated with a MFA from the Sandberg Institute in Amsterdam in the year 2000.
Although originally specialized in sound and video installations, she has recently turned to detailed pencil portrait drawings on dried foliage.
Since the beginning of Gígja's career her main inspiration has been natural forms and vegetation, juxtaposed to the contextual force that shapes her work, i.e. being the human condition. She explores the corporal and psychological experience of being human, the complexities of human emotions, relationships and society.
As a result the pieces she creates appear visually appealing and simultaneously conceptually inspiring.
