BALDVIN RINGSTED Born 1974, lives and works in Glasgow, Scotland

Icelandic artist Baldvin Ringsted is a multi-disciplinary artist based in Glasgow. Moving between image and sound, his works focus on points of transition, exploring the relationship between the formal properties and mathematical qualities of music and its cultural history and development. Coming from a musical background, Ringsted creates connections or translations from one medium to another. His practice crosses a range of media, transforming sound and music into visual and physical forms both literally and figuratively through collage, sculpture, painting, installations and video. He also turns this process around; i.e. uses ideas or objects as a source for making music. Baldvin Ringsted aims to spark auditory memory in his audience using sound through visual art.
