Artist Crush: Mamma Andersson

Monday, February 23, 2015

Karin Mama Andersson is a Swedish artist based in Stockholm who has shown at Stephen Friedman and David Zwirner. She corresponded in considerable length with Christian Hawkey of Bomb, writing “I often use black spray paint as a sign of bad atmosphere or unspecified threat. In the paintings, time flows together. It is at the same moment both now and then and in the future. Even the subject can be both the observer and one of the elements in the picture at the same time. This is probably because when I’m working, I am everything and everyone at the same time, just as when I was a child playing by myself, I played the parts of all the dolls and their mothers at the same time.”

Erased Photographs: Amanda Clyne

Thursday, February 5, 2015

Amanda Clyne manipulates the process of print photography using impregnable paper and a brush to achieve these celestial copies of European masterpieces.

“Inspired by portraiture, couture and the history of painting, I look to images where artifice reigns, in the historical portraits… that feign perfection. In the studio, I provoke their metamorphosis through experimental processes and hybrid modes of image making to excavate their artifice. The resulting works are portraits of portraits that dismantle the spectacle of image-making, and reflect the fragile nature of seeing and being seen.”
