Born in Iceland 1976.
Iris is inspired by the woman, her mind and body. The concept for most of her work is the endless battle that often happends between the two. Nature is a big inspiration and is often shown as an escape way to get lost in where nature and the person become one. Fashion and magazines are another influence in her art making, where the reality sometimes gets in the second place. Her artworks are collages or mixed media where she cuts and pastes, add´s pen and pencil drawings, magazine and book pages, gouache, acrylic, fabric and just everything that fits to create the final outcome. Her work is changing everyday so she is quickly moving forward with her art style.
