Artist Sophie Tottie has been active since the early 1990s, becoming known for her rather restrained and mostly abstract aesthetic which often references major existential and political issues. In spite of its vibrant feminist theory, the Scandinavian art scene into which Tottie emerged was still dominated by a legacy of painting that remained fixed and always present. Her artistic activities played into a shift towards postmodernism and an openness to interrogating painting and its history, while finding avenues of investigation in the procedural conceptual art of Sol LeWitt and others. This catalogue appears in conjunction with a large exhibition of the artist’s work in Stockholm.
