"Verk mín eru oft þrívíðar innsetningar,  smáar og stórar í sniðum. Í verkum mínum birti ég iðulega athuganir á afmörkuðum þáttum samfélagsins, og hafa þau oft dökkan undirtón. Efniviður þessara verka er mikið til fundnir eða  tilbúnir hlutir en í blandi við eigin frummótun.  Í verkum mínum gegna fundnir hlutir ákveðnu hlutverki sem tákngervingar minninga og reynslu einstaklinga eða hópa.

Í stórum dráttum má skipta verkum mínum í þrjá þætti: Mannréttindi og samfélag,  Neysla og neyslusamfélag, og Náttúra og samspil manns og náttúru. En í sumum verka minna fléttast þessir þættir saman, einn eða fleiri."

Það þarf að skapa sjálf­bært mynd­listar­líf á Ís­landi

Hlynur Helgason, lektor í listfræði við Háskóla Íslands, og Anna Eyjólfsdóttir, formaður SÍM, berjast bæði fyrir hagsmunum myndlistarmanna. Segja stærsta baráttumálið á  þessu ári vera hækkun starfslauna...
