Overview

Hovering between abstraction and figuration, Andreas Eriksson’s meditative works create a window onto the outside world and can be interpreted as patchwork topographies or details of organic forms such as trees, earth and rock formations.

Hovering between abstraction and figuration, Andreas Eriksson’s meditative works create a window onto the outside world and can be interpreted as patchwork topographies or details of organic forms such as trees, earth and rock formations.

Andreas Eriksson was born in 1975 in Björsäter, Sweden. He lives and works in Medelplana on the south bank of Lake Vänern, Sweden.

Eriksson’s artistic practice is highly expansive, encompassing a wide range of media including painting, photography, sculpture, tapestry and installation. Eriksson’s works often appear quiet and understated yet belie a poetic quality which has a lasting effect on the viewer. Since 2000 the artist has lived in a house situated in the midst of a forest on the edge of a lake. Small events and phenomena from his everyday life and the natural world that surrounds him become the outset for his works, giving his formal, conceptual, metaphorical and perceptual decision-making process a firm context.

Eriksson's work often embraces dualities such as inside and outside, lightness and heaviness, illusion and reality. His work hovers enigmatically between the abstract and the figurative, and is simultaneously familiar and mysterious. The emotional intensity with which Eriksson imbues his work is the result of a sustained exploration of his response to the natural world.
