Biography

Jana Jonhardsdóttir is a contemporary artist who works primarily with a monochromatic colour palette as well as her current environment, which is surrounded by the North Atlantic Ocean and is a transient source of inspiration in her abstract work.

With a wide range of mediums such as wood, prints, paints, carving and a combination of others, Jana makes expressionistic art consisting of repetitive patterns and minimalistic referencing. Much of the work resembles the mechanics of clocks - compulsive energy, repetitive and a reliable pattern, similar to the character of the ocean, oscillates between a compulsive preciseness of lines and textures and the wildness of expressionistic mark making. allowing a movement to become an expression and a texture to become a communication.

There is an aim to work between documentation and fiction, how these play off each other and how they work together, particularly when it relates to nature and the psychological term Nature Connectedness also known as Biophilia. 

The use and reference to the Lindenmayer’s systems, or L-systems for short, helps to generate artificial life and the pattern making in Jana´s paintings as well as carvings, the aim is to develop a symbolic language that speaks to a spiritual connection, be it cosmos, nature or religion.
 

Jana received her BA in Contemporary Arts from the University of Bath Spa Art and Design, in Bath England 2018 and her MA in Fine Arts, from the same University in 2019.

Jonhardsdóttir has been featured in several Scandinavian and European shows as well as being held by collectors and galleries in the Faroe Islands, Milano, Bath and elsewhere. Her next mission is to reach a wider audience.
