Mamma Andersson @ David Zwirner

Image coming soon.

Dan Piepenbring blogs about the exhibition Mamma Andersson: Behind the Curtain at David Zwirner Gallery, New York, on view from January 8 – February 14, 2015.

Piepenbring writes that Andersson "paints with a muted palette—she tends to draw from old photographs and films, theater sets, and well-preserved interiors. There’s a look-but-don’t-touch quality to her subjects, as if she’s visited some quiet museum, or snuck backstage, and has decided to flout the no-photography policy by simply painting the view instead. And so what should feel aloof or antiquated feels intimate, almost even illicit."
