Astrid Svangren
Nora & Copenhagen

Astrid Svangren holds a MFA from Malmö Art Academy, 1998. Her painterly work is multidimensional. Her paintings relate to the limitations the stretcher provides, but they also expand three dimensionally into their surroundings, and move from ceilings and wooden constructions. The spatial paintings can be interpreted as an extension of the traditional painterly process, and the materiality differ from tulle to fish net and cellophane.
