About the Artist
Irja Bodén’s work examines the themes of memory and belonging. Irja’s work is largely influenced by where she has lived: Swedish Lapland, New York City and the Adirondacks, among other places.
She works in all types of materials from clay to fabric, from wood to acrylic, with a combination of objects, paper, tread and embroidery, turning all of these materials into works of expression.
She received her BFA from SUNY Potsdam. She lives and works in upstate New York.
