Andreas Eriksson

13 March 2020 - 16 April 2020
Andreas Eriksson's fourth solo exhibition at the gallery is comprised of a new series of textiles, hand-woven in untreated yarn from the artist's native Sweden. Rendered in the subtle hues of un-dyed linen, this new body of work draws the viewer into a rich conceptual exploration of his rural surroundings in Medelplana, Sweden. Hovering enigmatically between abstraction and figuration, sculpture and painting, these meditative new works embrace dualities and creates a window onto the landscape that is both familiar and mysterious.

Andreas Eriksson: Kria

28 April 2018 - 26 May 2018
Stephen Friedman Gallery is delighted to present Swedish artist Andreas Eriksson's third solo exhibition at the gallery: ‘Kria'. Living and working in Lidköping, Sweden, he is known for the unique way he examines nature and the history of painting to illustrate the quiet beauty that underscores everyday life.

Meaning ‘school assignment' in Swedish, ‘Kria' features new paintings and explores the themes of repetition, the act of looking and the passing of time.

Andreas Eriksson: Röta, bråka, skäkta och häckla

10 February 2016 - 12 March 2016
Eriksson's second exhibition at the gallery is comprised of two new bodies of work: tapestries woven from untreated Swedish linen and paintings that exude a bold palette of sun-bleached colours. The works create a dramatic window onto the Nordic vista and investigate the relationship between the environment and our experience in it. The title of the show, ‘Röta, bråka, skäkta och häckla' is Swedish for the four stages of the linen-making process, and is left intentionally abstract for a non-Swedish speaking audience.

Andreas Eriksson: Coincidental Mapping

27 April 2013 - 30 May 2013
Stephen Friedman Gallery is delighted to announce its first exhibition of work by Andreas Eriksson. Born in 1975, this is the Swedish artist's first solo exhibition in the UK and follows his lauded presentation for the Nordic Pavilion at the 2011 Venice Biennale. Eriksson's acutely atmospheric paintings, tapestries, sculptures and photographs relate to his daily life and the natural surroundings of his native Scandinavia. This body of work sits somewhere between abstraction and figuration, creating an enigmatic window to the outside world that feels at once familiar and mysterious.
