Process is central to Jónsson’s textile-formed paintings, which become ghosts of the landscape of her native Iceland. Her colorful woven tapestries are stretched onto frames or (like her most recent works) heavily draped on gallery walls, further mirroring her beloved undulating Icelandic landscape. Jónsson returns to Iceland and photographs her hikes throughout its countryside, looking specifically “for shapes and interaction of lines and shapes. The photographs trigger the memory of being in these places and they help with forms,” she explained in the catalogue of her most recent solo exhibition.
