Malfridur Adalsteinsdottir is born in Iceland, but works and lives in Norway. For the time being there are mostly to starting points in her art; one is natur, and the other is cultural heritage and craft tradition. Her works often circel around nature in the north. The harsh nature of Iceland, and north of Norway and Spitsbergen. The clair and strong light that makes pattern when shining on water, ice, snow. The beuty and the stillness, but also the (storslåtthet) and the changes in the climat and nature. And then there are her interests in cultural heritage and craft tradition. She uses old craft tradition in contemporary art. The old craft tradition demanded closeness between the product and the person making it, people relied on natural resources, and the way of making things was a time consuming.
