Oda Iselin Sønderland


With her figurative watercolor paintings, Sønderland experiments with associations and complex narratives, often with references to fairytales and mythology.

Her use of symbolic elements and archetypical characters allude to certain experiences of identity, sexuality and puberty. Her varied work resemble that of dreams and the subconscious, creating a visual universe of her own psyche.

Sønderland holds a BFA in Graphic Design and Illustration from the National Academy of Art in Oslo 2018. The year after, in 2019, she had her first solo exhibition «Magical Girl», at Galleri Golsa. Later the same year she participated in the group show «Comic Tendencies» at Eve Leibe Gallery in London. This spring, 2020, her newest work is to be seen at Papier Art Fair in Montreal presented by Projet Pangee, Draw Art Fair in London presented by Eve Leibe Gallery and in the group show «Alone in a Crowd» at 1969 Gallery in New York.
