Text by art critic Ragna Sigurðardóttir 2004

In the art of Borghildur Óskarsdóttir one sees her background, the past and the present, the near and the far, the small and the very large, Her viewers have walked across an image of the earth from its core to the surface, have watched the constellations of the night sky reflected in the water of their swimming pool. She has presented her family tree and suggested the endless possibilities of every individual. Icelandic nature is the theme of many of Borghildur´s works, especially its fragility and the necessity of its preservation. But even when her works deal with urgent issues they always invite an open and poetic reading, in the end it is the viewer that decides, the artist respects the viewers ability to see and understand.
