Sigrid Sandström

Sigrid Sandström explores the relationship between the artist, artwork and the viewer, specifically where the focus of her work should lie. In her paintings, she explores site as concept as well as experience. Sandström’s large-scale, barren and uninhabited landscapes have gradually shifted and become more abstract over time. Failing to conform to specific categories of painting, her work continuously investigates the ontological conditions and limitations of the medium of painting. This indeterminacy forms a central role both in its investigative production and its relationship to the viewer.

BIOGRAPHY

Sigrid Sandström explores the relationship between the artist, artwork and the viewer, specifically where the focus of her work should lie. In her paintings, she explores site as concept as well as experience. Sandström’s large-scale, barren and uninhabited landscapes have gradually shifted and become more abstract over time. Failing to conform to specific categories of painting, her work continuously investigates the ontological conditions and limitations of the medium of painting. This indeterminacy forms a central role both in its investigative production and its relationship to the viewer.
