Andersson Mamma

Mamma Andersson
Mamma Andersson was born in 1962 in Luleå, Sweden. She studied at the Royal College of Fine Arts in Stockholm, where she continues to live and work. Andersson’s dreamlike, faintly narrative compositions are inspired by Nordic painting as well as folk art and cinema. Her complex use of pictorial space and technique, using thick impastos and textured washes, instill both a sense of pregnant mystery and domestic familiarity. Solo exhibitions of her work have been presented at the Museum Haus Esters in Krefeld, Germany; the Aspen Art Museum; and the Moderna Museet, Stockholm. In 2003, she represented the Nordic Pavilion in the 50th Venice Biennale. Her work is represented in numerous museum collections, including the Dallas Museum of Art; Göteborgs Konstmuseum, Gothenburg, Sweden; Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; The Museum of Modern Art, New York; and Moderna Museet, Stockholm.
