Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

Thordis Adalsteinsdottir is an Iceland-born, New York-based artist. Graduated from Icelandic Academy of Arts in 1999 and as a master of New York School of Visual Arts, MFA Program lin 2003, she has held exhibitions in numerous countries and received international praises. Influenced by pop art, minimalism, expressionism, and other alternative art movements, Adalsteinsdottir’s signature style is composed of deflated background created by neat, horizontal brushes and repeated handmade wallpaper pattern like thematic melody. Revealing cruelties in adult world with fairy-tale-like elements, she expresses emotionally charged moments in calm manners, and carries profound existential interrogation with scenarios deprived of depth. Absurdity, melancholy, indifference, and dream-like atmosphere with coercion of diverse components become her artworks’ key

Artist Profile

Hometown: Reykjavik

Based in: New York

Thordis Adalsteinsdottir was born in Reykjavik, Iceland, receiving a BFA from the Icelandic Academy of Arts In 1999 and a MFA from the School of Visual Arts, NY in 2003.

The paintings of Thordis Adalsteinsdottir present emotionally charged moments in a weightless manner. Her personable narratives are often hilariously sinister and casually violent.Influences range from Egon Schiele to Elizabeth Peyton, geometric abstraction, Op art, minimalism, expressionism, and outsider art. Adalsteinsdottir paints in an ultra flat manner with carefully nursed details, interrupted by repetitive freehand patterns and unexpected pops of eccentric textures. Even though her paintings achieve extremely cohesive rhythms in composition, Adalsteinsdottir does not work from sketches, and this raw spontaneity clashes wonderfully with the refinement of her controlled execution.
