About the artist

Andreas Eriksson

Swedish artist Andreas Eriksson, born in 1975, creates work that hovers between abstraction and figuration. Working in painting, photography, installation, and tapestry, Eriksson is often inspired by his everyday life and the natural world around the cabin he resides in on the edge of a lake in Sweden. The inspiration for his work is evident in the muted and earthy color palettes, and in the quiet, poetic nature of the works. Eriksson cites nordic romanticism, along with artists Edvard Munch and Jóhannes Sveinsson Kjarval, among the traditions that inspire him. 

Eriksson represented Sweden as part of the Nordic Pavilion at the 54th Venice Biennale (2011), and has has had many notable solo exhibitions, including The Nordic Watercolour Museum in Tjörn, Sweden (2020); ‘Memories of Snow’, Cahiers d’art, Paris, France (2020); ‘Cutouts, Mistakes and Threads’, Braunsfelder Family Collection, Cologne, Germany (2019); ‘Work in Progress’, Skissernas Museum, Lund, Sweden (2017); ‘Roundabouts’, Bonniers Konsthall, Stockholm, Sweden, which traveled to Trondheim Kunstmuseum, Trondheim, Norway; Centre PasquArt, Biel, Switzerland; and the Reykjavik Art Museum, Reykjavik, Iceland (2014–2015).

The artist’s works are included in prominent international collections including Centre Pompidou, Paris, France; FRAC Auvergne, Clermont-Ferrand, France; MUMOK, Vienna, Austria; Nasjonalmuseet, Oslo, Norway; Moderna Museet, Stockholm, Sweden; and X Museum, Beijing, China.
