About the artist
Working in the tradition of Pop Artists such as Claes Oldenburg and Andy Warhol, Linda Bäckström’s soft sculptures explore issues of power, status, and materiality. With a penchant for non-heroic, “anti-art” materials such as spray foam and aluminum, and a keen eye for cultural objects bemired in symbolic notions of power, Bäckström’s deeply tactile works create a rich interplay between association, meaning, and materials. A keen observer of what lay beyond the glitter of constructed facades, Bäckström infuses humor, whimsy, and satire into often sober themes.
Bäckström was born in 1982 in Bomhus, Sweden. She trained in Fine Art at the Royal Institute of Art and Pernby School of Painting, both in Stockholm, and studied textiles at the School of Design and Crafts in Gothenburg. She has exhibited widely in Sweden - at the Wetterling Gallery, the Sven-Harrys Konstmuseum, the Katrineholm Konsthall and the Örnsköldsviks Konsthall & Museum, among others. In addition, she has also shown her work in Germany, Austria and the UK. She lives and works in Stockholm.
Here the art can be seen in the best way and the staff is very knowledgeable and caring.
