My name is Nína Óskarsdóttir and I am a visual artist living and working in Reykjavík, Iceland.

I have a strong connection to materials and objecthood and thus my practice has become a sculptural one. Mostly I work with clay, sculpting and forming it, discovering textures and enjoying the hands-on approach it allows. I find ceramics wildly fascinating both on a material and a cultural basis. I try to make the material speak, to hint at something and to fascinate, but never to explain.

I like being an artist. It allows me to be forever curious about the world around me and gives me space to present my inquisitiveness. I am so curious about human behaviour, traditions and creativity. I also have such an appreciation for nature, geology and archeology. Just think of all those layers of history hidden beneath our feet. Of course this leads me to speculations about the spiritual realms, whatever they might be.

This might seem a bit fragmented but somehow all of these things somehow come together and make sense to me, and hopefully I can share a part of that with you.
