Soffía Sæmundsdóttir


I’m inspired by landscape and nature and seek unknown places to explore. In my paintings through various methods I explore different aspects of storytelling, looking at the landscape as background in the story but in my drawings and prints I tend to let the material lead the way and let go of the control, the landscapes reveal exploration of a place.
