Sigrid Sandström

Swedish-born artist Sigrid Sandström claims that she paints not to achieve a specific vision, but to "embrace and revel in the obscurities and lost tracks within the process." Her striking compositions, typically using acrylic, often evoke a fragmented version of the landscapes of her native Scandinavia, with abstract geometrical motifs layered over scenes resembling icy mountain ranges or seascapes. As the artist describes, her paintings engage with the question of "how space—specifically landscape—is understood as a concept, a physical site, and as an emotional experience."
