Tal R & Mamma Andersson: About Hill
Tal R and Mamma Andersson's references include turn-of-the-century Nordic figurative painting, folk art, and local or contemporary vernacular. Direct allusions to art history can be seen in both artists' works and two-person exhibition 'About Hill', explores the context of Nordic painting and the art of Carl Fredrik Hill (1849-1911). For this exhibition both artists have created a series of brand new works, all related to the great Swedish artist.
Even though the immediate expression of their works appears to be different, the two artists share an enthusiasm for, and fascination with the great masters of the past. Tal R’s works include his own versions of Munch’s 'The Scream' and 'Danish Artists in Rome' (after Constantin Hansen); while in the works of Mamma Andersson, painters such as Peter Doig, Claude Monet, Edward Hopper etc. often feature in her interiors, and her motifs reflects the dark world of Nordic painting.
This touring exhibituon was previously on display at Kunsten Museum of Modern Art Aalborg, Aalborg, Denmark.
