One Of Sweden’s Most Acclaimed Artists Opens New Show In Andersonville

Karin Broos’ Artwork

A new show from one of Sweden’s most acclaimed artists today has opened her new show at the Swedish American Museum in Andersonville now through Sunday, September 23.

Karen Broos has received much attention and gathered international praise with a style of painting that is reminiscent of past Swedish masters with a more contemporary approach. Born in the 1950’s, she trained at the Royal Academy St. Joost in S’Hertogenbosch in the Netherlands and has since worked in a region of Sweden called Värmland since 1975.

She draws much inspiration from Värmland, showcasing its countryside, forests and lakes. Her family including daughters and grandchildren are often found as the subjects in her pieces.

Her new exhibit called “Still Life,” continues her photo-realistic work from a compassionate female point-of-view. The art features women who are often surrounded by water. Seemingly frozen in time, the subjects flow within paintings that showcase mundane situations coupled with ambiguous meanings and universal feelings of melancholy and sadness.
