索迪絲.阿德丹斯多堤 Thordis Adalsteinsdottir

冰島籍藝術家索迪,習慣性的將畫布上的作品做為其對於現實社會的詮釋。畫布上充滿的超寫實,光怪路離的人物和動物形像以不協調和不具邏輯性的方式排整在作品上,成功的引導觀者進入她的想像。

出生在冰島的索迪絲,是冰島當代藝術中最重要的畫家,2006年以40歲不到的姿態,成為在冰島首都雷克雅維諾美術館中最年輕便舉辦個人回顧展的藝

術家。2006年之後的個展讓當時已經在紐約的索迪絲向自己前十年職業生涯的繪畫致敬,並且開啟了立體雕塑的歷程。

索迪絲的母藝廊是紐約具有30年歷史的 STUX Gallery,Nunu Fine Art 非常榮幸成為其在亞洲的代理畫廊,並且期待其具有豐富故事性的作品能為台灣的藝文朋友帶來不同的聯想。
