Etchings from Karolina Larusdottir

Etchings from Karolina Larusdottir

Red Rag has shown the paintings of artist Karolina Larusdottir for many years. Now the gallery is promoting collectible etchings with fifteen Karolina Larusdottir Limited Edition Prints added to the Red Rag range.

Karolina Larudottir studied contemporary art at the Ruskin School of Art in Oxford between1965 to 1967. In 1986 she was elected a member of the Royal Society of Painter–Printmakers in 1996. Larusdottir’s unique vision of both her Icelandic homeland and England have won her a deservedly high reputation in the fields of contemporary British art.

In many paintings and etchings Karolina Larusdottir creates a world of her own, with imaginary people in strange situations, often floating, carrying rainbows or being visited by angels. Often Karolina’s contemporary art pieces contain a wry humour that enhances the surreal and timeless qualities she creates when dealing with her favourite subject – people.

Karolina Larusdotir successes include many solo and mixed art shows at prestigious exhibitions of modern art in Britain, Europe, Africa and USA. In 1993 and again in 1997 the Royal Academy used her paintings to advertise the Summer exhibition. She is the recipient of many art prizes and her art works appear in many private and corporate art collections, including The Vatican, Rome and HRH Queen Elizabeth.
