Mamma Andersson's fifth exhibition at Stephen Friedman Gallery will focus on a new series of unique woodcut prints. This will be the artist's first solo presentation dedicated to this technique and marks an exciting development in her practice. These prints are emotive scenes and portraits of "...characters who will not be pinned down: fleet of foot, they move swiftly across centuries, indifferent to mortality and geography" (Jennifer Higgie, 2017). Andersson is known for her evocative paintings, creating worlds that have a near-hypnotic sense of familiarity with little trace of modern life. In addition to the prints, three large paintings on canvas expand upon the same stories and mysteries.
