Áslaug Íris Katrín Friðjónsdóttir (b. 1981) graduated from the School of Visual Arts in New York with an MFA degree in 2009 and obtained a BA degree in fine arts from the Iceland University of the Arts in 2006. A rich sense of materiality characterizes Áslaug's work, who works with abstract imagery and looks for meanings in varied material choices and methods, e.g. by drawing in a stoned surface and the interaction of stones within other components resulting in her distinctive sculptural painting style.

Áslaug has had multiple solo exhibitions and participated in group shows in museums and galleries across Europe, the United States, and Iceland. Notable mentions include "I have never seen figurative electricity" at Ásmundarsafn, "Stellingar I Linear Narratives" at Berg Contemporary, "Skúlptúr Skúlptúr" at Gerðarsafn, as well as solo exhibitions "Arfur" at Gallerí Þula, "Echo" at Listval Gallery, and "Skil | Skjól" at Neskirkja. In 2023 Áslaug participated in the art fair Market in Stockholm and a group exhibition at the Icelandic Embassy residence in Stockholm as well as the group exhibition "Harmony" at the Icelandic Embassy in Copenhagen, Denmark and opened her solo exhibition "Open" at Þula gallery which was chosen by the icelandic newspaper Morgunblaðið to be one of five best exhibitions of the year 2023.

Works by Áslaug are held in the collections of public art museums in Iceland.
