Hildur Ásgeirsdóttir Jónsson: Infinite Space, Sublime Horizons

August 26–December 10, 2023

Hildur Ásgeirsdóttir Jónsson creates exquisite large-scale paintings on a loom, in a practice that blurs the boundaries between painting and weaving, fine art and craft. Born and raised in Iceland, Jónsson has spent the last 30 years in Cleveland, Ohio, where she has made increasingly ambitious work that veers between abstraction and representation, with deep connections to Iceland’s otherworldly landscapes. Bringing together Jónsson’s largest and most labor-intensive paintings yet, alongside smaller paintings, drawings, and watercolors, this presentation will be the artist’s first West Coast exhibition and her first solo museum show in the US in nearly a decade.
