Irene Laub Gallery is glad to present Icelandic artist Gudny Rosa Ingimarsdottir and Spanish artist Guillermo Mora at Art Rotterdam 2021.
Gudny Rosa Ingimarsdottir's artworks, in which she mixes paper, sewing, words and various fragments of her universe, take the form of stratigraphic or topographic assemblages. Each layer carries a sensory and symbolic value, each stitch that links the fragments together marks a memory or an emotion. The forms vacillate between the organic and the abstract, words and lines are intertwined.
Gudny Rosa Ingimarsdottir has been invited by numerous institutions in Iceland and in Europe, including solo shows at the National Gallery of Iceland in 2008, the Hafnarborg Art Center (IS) in 2019 and at Iselp in Brussels (BE) in 2020. She received the Gudmunda S. Kristinsdóttir Art Fund grant in 2013. Her works are included in the collection of the Frac Picardie of Amiens, the Centre national des arts plastiques in Paris (FR), of the Musée d'Ixelles in Brussels, among others.
Spanish artist Guillermo Mora conceives his practice as an process of adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing. Evading the traditional divide between painting and sculpture, his work takes different forms and looks at the forgotten histories of painting - specifically concealment, overlapping and disappearance.
Guillermo Mora received a BFA from the Complutense University of Madrid and the School of Art Institute of Chicago, and completed his PhD thanks to a grant from La Caixa Foundation. The artist was featured in 100 Painters of Tomorrow by Thames & Hudson, awarded the Audemars Piguet Award in 2013, and received a fellowship from the Spanish Academy in Rome in 2010–2011, as well as a scholarship at the International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP) in New York in 2016. His work is part of the Margulies Collection (US), the Museum Voorlinden (NL), the Elgiz Museum (TR), the Fondazione Benetton (IT), the Centro de Arte Dos de Mayo (ES), and the Caja Madrid Foundation (ES), and many others.
