Karin Mamma Andersson

Stays, oil on panel

Mamma Andersson, who is a well-known artist by having a unique and timeless quality through her juxtapositions of thick paint and textured washes. In Stays, I saw the objects with relation to women position in period.

I am really interested in one of her exhibition in 2015- "Behind the curtain". In this exhibition, she paint with the subject of historical conventions for shaping the female body-both physically and socially. She often works with old photographs, films as well as theater sets and period interiors within a creative content. In this exhibition, I try to figure out how she organized the compositions and how she used paint to do the textures. I think she is a really great artist to learn from, about how to shift the space by using paint and compositions wisely.
