From Press Release (in Swedish):
En utställning curerad av Karin Mamma Andersson
Som betraktare kan en särskild glädje vara att få gå in i konstnärs bildvärld, och låta sig ryckas med av dess stämning. Ibland kan ett uttryck och ett formspråk vara så starkt och egenartat, att man börjar se verkligheten litet annorlunda, sedan man tagit del av det. Man har berikats.

New tendencies in figurative painting
From Press Release (Swedish only):
Stephen Friedman Gallery is delighted to announce an exhibition of new paintings by Mamma Andersson. Andersson, born in 1962, paints complex compositions that bring together a variety of sources including Nordic figurative painting, folk art and contemporary iconography. She juxtaposes thick impasto and loosely washed areas to create dreamlike and expressive vistas yet also allows reality to enter her paintings in the form of the commonplace.
