CV

“One of the most individualistic Faroese artists today is Sigrun Gunnarsdóttir. She works with a moderate Naivistic idiom too, and a bleak, greyish palette. Both her style and the intensely disturbing atmosphere found in her works recalls Giorgio de Chirico (1888-1978), the italian Surrealist and Symbolist pioneer. And, as in Chirico’s pictures, we understand immediately the content of Sigrun’s images, but, at the same time, sense a metaphorical extension which reflects the unconscious. After having seen her pictures, they are irredeemably etched into mind, accompanying us in our thoughts for a considerable time thereafter”
