Gudrun´s Mountain Series 2014–2018 of recycled materials is influenced by working in her Reykjavík studio on the site of one of Iceland’s leading providers of environmental management services and clean energy.
Gudrun aligns herself with the kind of three-dimensional art which might be called a modernist-based formalism with minimalist or constructivist overtones. The ‘Japan factor’ should be seen in the context of the second aspect of Gudrun´s ‘style’, her enduring interest in clear and concise forms and proportions, and in qualities such as lightness and harmony, in short, everything that contributes to the optimum balance of elements within the work at hand as well as the environment without. These are qualities traditionally associated with the Japanese attitude to mass and space, as seen in the work of their most prominent architects. A fundamental aspect of this attitude is a certain spareness with regard to materials, which is also something that Gudrún subscribes to. Adalsteinn Ingolfsson.
