Nína Óskarsdóttir is a visual artist from Reykjavík, Iceland.
She works primarily in sculpture and she utilises materials, such as ceramics, textiles and printmaking, in experimental ways. In her practice she explores how physical objects and imagery can act as gateways into a perception of the immaterial or the invisible world. By working with material she attempts to challenge the perception of the viewer through assembling fragments of culturally familiar objects. Thus emphasising the space between them and creating an opportunity for the viewer to fill in the gaps with their own narrative. Her inspiration comes from the collective human experience as she plays with the boundaries of the personal and the universal.
Nína is also the co-founder and editor of the small publishing house Þrjár hendur along with Óskar Árni Óskarsson. Þrjár hendur’s focus is to create a dialogue between literature and visual arts by publishing together works by authors and artists.
