1975 · Faroe Islands
Mastering the art of the mesmerizing abstract composition, artist Rannva Kunoy seems to have perfected her ability to exude the maximum amount of expression from the most minimal of elements.
Conjuring seemingly random or inconsequential lines and brush marks across her often blue-hued works, Kunoy’s art immediately calms the senses with its rich, inviting color. At the same time, the shade of blue to which she frequently returns evokes recollections of a blueprint, as if she is mapping a time or space for the viewer to explore. Any such map is hidden within her mélange of marks, resulting in a body of work as secretive as it is scintillating.
Born in the Faroe Islands in 1975, Kunoy studied at the City and Guilds of London Art School from 1995 to 1999 before completing her studies at the Royal College of Art in 2001. Today Kunoy is based in London and continues to be an avid exhibitor of her work. Recent solo showcases include those at the Centre PasquArt in Biel (2015); the Lundgren Gallery in Mallorca (2016); and the Nathalie Karg Gallery in New York (2017).
