Kristín Rúnarsdóttir (b. 1984) is a visual artist living and working in Keflavik, Iceland. She holds an M.A. from Bergen Academy of Art and Design, and a B.A. in fine art from the Iceland Academy of the Arts. Recent solo exhibitions include prik/ strik/ at the Living Art Museum, Reykjavik in 2015 and ‘Leikfléttur / Strategies at Reykjanes Art Museum, Keflavik in 2014.
Seeking inspiration in rules and organization, she bases her work on signs and markings associated with various areas where color and line are used to define spaces, ranging from playgrounds and sports stadiums to airfields, roads and parking areas. Another aspect of her artistic practice deals with the subject matter of travel and the experience of moving through natural landscape and built environment.
Using clean-cut visual imagery that straddles the institutional and cold on the one hand and the personal and playful on the other, she creates complicated installations - often using tape to make line-drawings on floors and walls and integrating wooden constructions and painted sticks that are spread around exhibition spaces.
After her Art History studies at the University of Hamburg, Saskia Krafft received an BA from the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences and studied Fine Arts with a concentration in sculpture at the University of Fine Arts in Hamburg, Germany.
Her work is still strongly influenced by her artistic background of drawing and printmaking, but due to numerous field and research trips all over Europe, to Russia and the Middle East, her work turned into an interplay between the most different media by implementing sculptures, prints and architectural elements in installations. In 2015 she participated in the Study Abroad Program of the Multidisciplinary Arts Department of the Shenkar College in Israel and the General Fine Arts Program of the Maryland Institute College of Art in the United States. In 2017 she will continue her MFA graduate studies in the United States as a Fulbright scholar.
She received grants of the Ditze-Foundation and the German Academic Exchange Service and participated in exhibitions in Germany, Israel and the United States.

I practice direct contact with simple materials and domestic processes for sublime ends. My paintings are places of improvisation and polarity. They are also translucent habitations for light. Skin-like and vulnerable, they bleed. Working with colour as a sentient phenomenon facilitates painterly regenerations of spaces and things by leading them beyond their fixed boundaries. These contemplative and/or quirky attempts at animism are indebted to dead romantics and modernists. They furnish utopian longings for a thriving culture of human experience
