Inspired by filmic imagery, theatre sets, and period interiors, Andersson‘s compositions are often dreamlike and expressive.

Mamma Andersson was born 1962 in Luleå, Sweden. She lives and works in Stockholm.
 

Inspired by filmic imagery, theatre sets, and period interiors, Andersson‘s compositions are often dreamlike and expressive. While stylistic references include turn-of-the-century Nordic figurative painting, folk art, and local or contemporary vernacular, her evocative use of pictorial space and her juxtapositions of thick paint and textured washes are uniquely her own. Her subject matter revolves around melancholic landscapes and nondescript, private interiors.

In 2018 Andersson won the Daniel And Florence Guerlain Drawing Prize, a prestigious award honouring a living European artist. She was a co-curator of the 33rd Bienal de São Paulo, Brazil and her solo exhibition ‘Memory Banks' opened in October 2018 at Contemporary Arts Center, Cincinnati, USA.
