Kristján Gudmundsson is a pioneer of Icelandic conceptual art, creating intellectually challenging and sometimes humorous artworks that address issues of science, art, and philosophy. A process artist who drills the mediums of drawing and painting down to their bare essentials, Gudmundsson chooses the tools and materials that he works with very deliberately, often with the intention of exploring the nature of their physical properties themselves. The artist has said about his work: "I am trying to work within the field of tension that exists between nothing and something."
Gundmundsson was the 2010 recipient of the Carnegie Art Award, one of the largest art prizes for the Nordic countries, and in 2008 he had a solo exhibition at the National Gallery of Iceland. He also participated in the 1982 Venice Biennale.Read Less
