Sigrid Sandström makes works that are accumulations of rich layers of paint. Her effects oscillate between illusive three-dimensional space and stark physical flatness. In this work, Sandström creates a dynamic composition by combining blue geometric strips alongside more immediate painterly marks. The final work is energetic and complex. Sandström has exhibited her work internationally, including solo exhibitions at Galleri Gunnar Olsson, Stockholm; The Company, Los Angeles; Frye Museum, Seattle; and Mills College Art Museum, Oakland. Sandström’s paintings are in the public collections of Moderna Museet, Stockholm; Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; and Yale University Art Gallery, New Haven. In 2008, she received a Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship and a Joan Mitchell Foundation Grant. Sandström currently lives and works in Stockholm.
