Kjartansdóttir finds inspiration in the surrounding world, by seeing, listening and catching a glimpse from every day life. She explores themes as childhood, maternity, mentality, and sexuality out from her admiration in the female body. The materials applied in her work vary between clothing, stones, wood, coffee filters and linoleum.
