Printmaking, especially woodcut, has long been an integral part of Mamma Andersson’s artistic practice, and her involvement with the medium has intensified since she purchased her own printing press for her studio in Sweden.
Although she has worked with a wide range of printing techniques, her print project with BORCH Editions marked her first encounter with the drypoint technique. Andersson was intrigued by the immediacy of drypoints, the direct mark making on a copper plate without the involvement of chemical processes.
Mamma Andersson was born in Luleå, Sweden, in 1962 and lives and works in Stockholm. She has been collaborating with BORCH Editions since 2019.
