Haraldur Jónsson nominated the Icelandic poet and writer Kristín Ómarsdóttir:
Kristín Ómarsdóttir is a writer and a visual artist. She is a permanent inspiration and a vital spark on many levels. Her direct, uncompromising approach to familiar circumstances makes me wonder about it all. The interaction between words and images in her works trigger spicy associations and pushes me further towards a certain edge. She questions the common and composes realities of visceral nuances and raw poetry. Her work is playful and deadly serious at once as it celebrates the tragic beauty of being. Kristín brings light into the obscure, inventing sudden colors along the way.
