According to the essay by Risa Puleo, Swedish painter Sigrid Sandström’s recent paintings “speak to internal orientations set within and against external coordinating systems, asking us to be aware of what is inside us in concert with what is around us.” Done in smooth layers of acrylic paint on board or canvas, the overlapping of irregular shapes, thin lines left by masking tape, and gestures of smeared paint seem to straddle the observer’s blind spot, the dividing line between inside and outside. Featuring more than 120 works, plus an interview and installation views of exhibitions in Houston and Stockholm, the volume gives an insightful overview of this young artist’s growing oeuvre.
