Bio

Mamma Andersson was born 1962 in Luleå, Sweden. She lives and works in Stockholm.

Inspired by filmic imagery, theatre sets, and period interiors, 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.
