Andréhn-Schiptjenko

Stockholm/Paris

Since its founding in 1991, Andréhn-Schiptjenko has consistently been committed to working in an international arena.

The gallery works with long-term representation of emerging and established contemporary international artists from all over the world, presenting painting, sculpture, photography and video, as well as installation-based and site-specific work. By expanding the gallery's international scope, to be able to accommodate for collaborative and multidisciplinary projects as well as allowing for a closer relationship with the gallery's international network, Andréhn-Schiptjenko opened a second space in Paris in 2019.

Mark Frygell

Mark Frygell’s works are closely related to the history of painting. He repeatedly treats and reworks gestures, references and materials, inspired by different methods of painting. He is interested in concepts like caricature, comedy and biography in relation to painting as well as the painter. His most recent works explores his own relationship with the figure. Primarily with focus on the figurative as moral and identity-creating objects as well as carriers of a collective consciousness.

The reuse of forms, colors, compositions, themes and expressions of a certain painterly language are an important part of Mark Frygell’s method of work. He starts with quick drawings made directly on the pages in books that he reads, or on different found materials. He then refines and process the motives, transferring them to oil on paper and then oil on canvas. Through these different stages he explores the motives and finds new shapes and forms. During these different stages, he also adds his own references from sub-cultures, music and cartoons.
