Cahiers d’Art produced Andreas Eriksson’s monotypes for his exhibition Memories of Snow
The exhibition was on view from February 27 to May 31, 2020, it included a series of prints as well as other paintings of varying dimensions. Eriksson depicts small events and phenomena in his everyday life and environment, enigmatically oscillating between the abstract and the figurative, to create a window on the outside world that is both familiar and mysterious. The emotional intensity with which he imbues his work is the result of a sustained search to trace his own reactions to the natural world around him. Here, the artist has composed his monotypes by meticulously arranging unchanged pieces of found wood, allowing their imprint to speak naturally. His series includes five engravings produced exclusively by Cahiers d’Art.
“What is most important is that I remain honest to myself,” he says. “I think that all the different things I do in my studio have the same value… However, I enjoy this eclectic situation.”
