Andersson’s artworks consists of photographs, paintings and drawings. In the dramatized situations of the photographs, there’s a strong mystical and psychological force. This force is also present in the paintings, which are in dialogue with a former civilization; with both literature, film and fine art.
In the artist’s style you can see influences from many different time periods. Andersson sees clear links and continuums in this wide source material. He uses the archive of art history as a sort of dictionary, forming new sentences, and bringing the dialogue that’s already going on, further.
Esthetic and beauty do have their own place in Andersson’s art. As he sees it, this is a veil through which we can filter even our darker feelings – the conscious and the unconscious ones. The work of art functions as some kind of softening device, with the help of which we can be in touch with these feelings.
