Grýla is a digital collection by Berglind Rögnvaldsdóttir. 

Queen and Clip Art are the first digital assets to drop from this collection on a 75 day Dutch Auction with prices being updated weekly. 

Berglind’s dreamlike, photo-based artworks realise the beauty of nature and the imaginary realm of patriarchal view. The native Icelandic artist’s work creates a vision of the feminine gaze to look at what people believe is natural.

In the summer of 2018 Berglind graduated Bilder Nordic school of photography with a degree in photography and storytelling. Since graduating she has exhibited in big art festivals in Oslo; Collective Fashion Art in 2018 and Fusion Oslo in 2019 and 2021. In 2020 she was chosen for Create Magazine issue #20 Womens Edition.

Queen and Clip Art, are collages made out of the same photographs taken in Iceland. Experimenting with forms and textures of nature to make up this world only existing within the universe of that time frame.

With roots dating back to the 13th century, Grýla is not to be messed with. In the olden days, poems and stories were written about her and her husbands, although their love stories were short-lived. At one point she allegedly ate one of them for breakfast when she had gotten bored with him. In many ways, Grýla is Iceland's first feminist. The Queen of the mountains up in the north and the goddess of the lava in the south.

The Queen of the mountains up in the north and the goddess of the lava in the south. Queen is a 1 of 1 digital artwork, will be minted on OpenSea and transferred directly to the wallet of the collector.

What's a Dutch Auction?

In a Dutch auction, an item is offered at a set maximum price, which is incrementally lowered until a bid is made. Whoever places the first bid wins the auction.

The term “Dutch auction” stems from the auction style used in 17th century Holland's tulip markets. The bulbs were wildly popular, and the marketplace for them had been chaotic. The exchange decided that the best way to sell the tulip bulbs was to do it quickly in as few bids as possible.
