PopUp Painting’s ‘artist of the week’ is Karin Mamma Andersson.
The artist studied at the Royal University College of Fine Arts in Stockholm between 1986-1993.
Mamma Andersson has a distinctive style of painting that juxtaposes thickly layered paint with loosely washed areas of textured paint.
The artist often plays with a sense of space, depicting skewed perspectives and impossible circumstances coexisting. Andersson is inspired by filmic imagery, theater sets, period interiors, as well as folk art and Nordic figurative painting.
