Þóra Sigurðardóttir´s (b.1954, Akureyri) art practice applies drawing, and often other mediums, as a way to expand patterned repetition, inversion and transformation through the nature of material, process and environment. Working in two- and three-dimensional forms she places emphasis on navigating layered surfaces and structures. After completing studies at the Icelandic College of Art and Craft (1979-81) Þóra pursued graduate studies at Det Jyske Kunstakademi in Denmark (1987-91). She then received an MA in Cultural Studies and Cultural Management from the University of Iceland (2012) and has studied Philosophy and Art History at the Open University. Þóra´s work has been exhibited locally and internationally since 1991 and can be found in private and public collections in Iceland and abroad including the Reykjavík Art Museum, The National Gallery of Iceland, and the Living Art Museum. Other projects have include teaching art (since 1996), directing the Reykjavík Art Academy (1998-2010), managing and curating Dalir og hólar, a mobile exhibition project in Breiðafjörður and developing the guesthouse Nýp at Skarðstrand (since 2006).
