'Mamma Andersson: Tick Tock'

Konsthallen, Kulturens Hus, Sweden

Swedish artist Mamma Andersson returns to her childhood hometown, Luleå, for a solo exhibition, 'Tik Tok'. The show showcases a personal selection of paintings and graphic works from recent years, some never before seen in public in Sweden.

Inspired by filmic imagery, theatre sets, and period interiors, Mamma 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 is uniquely her own. Her subject matter revolves around evocative, melancholic landscapes and nondescript, private interiors.

Andersson's works are included in prominent collections internationally, including the Dallas Museum of Art; Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; The Museum of Modern Art, New York; and the Moderna Museet, Stockholm. She lives and works in Stockholm.
