The work of famed Icelandic artist Ella Rósinkrans often takes form as wall sculptures made of recycled glass in which mild and intense colours play with abstract as well as natural and figurative subjects. They have enchanted and fascinated art lovers around the world since she discovered the method and aesthetic over a decade ago. Speaking of their quality she enthuses, "...glass is a transparent, honest material, surrounded with magic."
With roots in the remote west fjords of Iceland, Ella Rósinkrans has travelled widely. After her art studies in Iceland she went to South America where she studied art and design. Ella continue to live and work in Chile for a number of years and one can truly sense the exotic cultural waves in her work. Rósinkrans has worked as an artist and designer for the last twenty five years, and previous to becoming a full time fine artist designed and manufactured jewellery for high street chain Oasis.
"I guess I am celebrating life in my work, embracing it and seizing," the artist says about her own work. The affect is obvious, "Carpe diem" or seize the day, is a clear message of the glass works – joyful creatures and earthly and heavenly forms."
Ella Rósinkrans artwork decorates a number of the larger corporations in Iceland, as well as two hotel and many private homes worldwide. She has exhibited her work in Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Italy, France and the US.
