Katrín Sigurðardóttir's work is often composed of miniature landscapes and architecture set within or atop cubist frames and plinths that divide, confine, distort or expand. Her disinterest in borders and the myths that buttress nationalism are apparent in much of her work and stems from something I experienced in attending university in a country 5000 miles from home which is an extreme change of perspective that renders any nationalistic paradigms farcical.

Born in Iceland(1967), Katrín studied at the Icelandic College of Art and Crafts and the San Francisco Art Institute. She currently resides in New York and has exhibited internationally.
