Current Exhibition :: Sigrid Sandstrom “Hide-outs”
The Company is pleased to announce an exhibition of new works by Stockholm based painter Sigrid Sandström. Hide-outs is Sandström’s second solo exhibition with The Company.
In her newest paintings, Sandström has abandoned the remnants of landscape and still life visible in her previous works, with an interest in the experience between the paintings and the viewer. Whereas her earlier works sought to articulate place, still tied to more formal conceptions of painting, Sandström has embraced the beauty of allowing nothingness, or elusiveness, to dominate. Yet the specifics and experiential encounters with places, particularly the remote and non-inhabited continues to exert an influence in her mindset. Sandström’s work forces you to question the negation, her intent not being to necessarily compel an answer or a solution, but immerse yourself in the quiet, in the unforeseen, the unmanageable.
