Hrafhildur explains the finer points of her work

Hrafhildur is an Icelandic artist in residence at Valparaiso. Whilst here, she was finishing a thesis for a degree, so was mostly writing. However, she was also often seen crocheting a large black and white circle whilst the rest of us were merry making. She is an outstanding textile artists and her work is in the collection of at least two major international museums. She works mostly in recycled materials, knotting, tying, knitting and crocheting large wall soft sculptures for installations. She is also a beautiful mark maker and drawer.
Here is a selection of photos fro her presentation.
