Oda Iselin Sønderland

  • Oda Iselin Sønderland (b.1996, Oslo) works mainly with watercolour painting, sometimes paired with sculpture, creating figurative work that draws in personal life experiences together with elements and shared stories from her own and other cultures, ranging from magical creatures to characters with an appearance that alludes to Japanese anime. The structure of her work often plays with frames and an image within an image, constructing an inside versus an outside. This connects to the recurring topic of a split self and opposing forces that often occur in her work. Sønderland holds an MA in Painting from The Royal College of Art in London and a BA in Graphic Design and Illustration from The National Academy of the Arts in Oslo. She has been exhibited at Pangée (Montreal, 2023), François Ghebaly (New York, 2023), 1969 Gallery (New York, 2023), NEVVEN (Gothenburg, 2023 and 2022), Marlborough Gallery (London, 2022), Castor Gallery (London, 2022), Arsenal Contemporary (Toronto, 2021), Like A Little Disaster (Polignano a Mare, 2021), and Galleri Golsa (Oslo, 2019) among others. Sønderland lives and works in Oslo, Norway.
