Camilla Engström (SE)

Camilla Engström’s bucolic, metaphysical landscapes are a celebration of the healing power of the natural world within our increasingly digitised existence. Their hallucinogenic palette and voluptuous curving forms, realised in a sorbet-coloured palette, channel the erotic charge of Georgia O’Keeffe, while their spiritual energy owes much to her fellow Swede: Hilma Af Klint. Hailed as both feminist and fecund, Engström’s painting practice offers a subtle critique of millennial preoccupations spawned from the digital realm: from body shaming to the cult of the self.

Engström (b. 1989, Örebro; SE) lives and works in Los Angeles. A self-taught artist, she graduated from Parsons School of Design in 2009. She gave up her career in fashion to become a full-time artist when a series of drawings she had been posting on Instagram began to attract significant interest. Engström’s recent exhibitions with the gallery include Målningar till Mamma och Pappa and Stockholm Sessions at Carl Kostyál, Hospitalet (SE).
