Pocket Utopia is pleased to present a solo exhibition of works by

Hildur Ásgeirsdóttir Jónsson. The exhibition at Pocket Utopia, although organized independently from the two other simultaneously occurring solo exhibitions, highlights one woven painting along with and a selection of Jónsson’s drawings.

Elsewhere, at The Frances Young Tang Teaching Museum and Art Gallery at Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, New York, Hildur Ásgeirsdóttir Jónsson exhibits a selection of artwork from the past five years, including large-scale woven paintings made on a ten-foot-wide loom. At Critical Practices Inc. and 21ST.PROJECTS in New York’s Chelsea neighborhood, Jónsson presents several newly created pieces.

Although the context might change, Jónsson demonstrates in her hand-dyed, silk woven paintings and ink drawings, an intimate connection with the landscape of her native Iceland. With an ethereal clarity and precision, Jónsson weaves a theme that is geology specific and generally about a sense of place that is dynamic, personal and spatial.
