✌ Quiet beauty + Ordinary spaces



Swedish, b. 1962 


Within Andersson's works, she plays with the beauty of ordinary spaces, revealing a wanderlust of truth through everyday simplicity.



Karin Mamma Andersson (Swedish, b.1962), commonly known as Mamma Anderson, is a Contemporary painter. Her work is often figurative, frequently depicting domestic interiors and snowy landscapes, and is known for its quiet, dreamlike quality, and use of theater-like pictorial space.
