Statement

Gudrun aligns herself with the kind of three-dimensional art which

might be called a modernist-based formalism with minimalist or

constructivist overtones. The Japan factor should be seen in the

context of the second aspect of Gudrun´s style, her enduring interest

in clear and concise forms and proportions, and in qualities such as

lightness and harmony, in short, everything that contributes to the

optimum balance of elements within the work at hand as well as the

environment without. These are qualities traditionally associated with

the Japanese attitude to mass and space, as seen in the work of their

most prominent architects. A fundamental aspect of this attitude is a

certain spareness with regard to materials, which is also something that

Gudrun subscribes to....text by Adalsteinn Ingolfsson 2009
