The exhibition “Rababari” (“Rhubarb”) by the visual artists Anna Sigrídur Hródmarsdóttir and Gudrún Hadda Bjarnadóttir opened in the Artótek gallery in the Reykjavík City Library on Friday.
Hródmarsdóttir works with clay and is also a painter. Her motives are rather traditional, for example, the mountains in Skagafjördur, north Iceland, have inspired many of her works, a press release describes.
Bjarnadóttir has a background in textile, especially weaving, but she also paints, takes photographs and works with other material. Embroidery and other Icelandic cultural heritage have proven an inspiration in her art creation.
The artists have exhibited their work together on earlier occasions and the theme of their exhibitions has often been food-related, for example, blue mussel, meat soup and sushi. Their current exhibition is dedicated to the rhubarb.
