'Transformations' features reproductions and details of the Icelandic artist’s recent paintings, drawings, and mosaics from a project that takes symbolism surrounding Easter as a departure point. Haraldsdóttir utilizes figurative oil painting to construct playful and highly personal interpretations that present 21st century imagery of the death and resurrection of Christ. Yet the paintings remain open-ended and ambiguous at the same time. Her skilful large-format paintings create tableaux that invite viewers to consider possible worlds infused with symbolism, memory, landscape, interiors, and kinship.
