Ingrid Andersson was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1986. From a very young age, she showed a keen interest in drawing and painting. She attended several workshops, where she worked mostly with watercolours and acrylics, and participated in group exhibitions. In 2014 she moved to the United Kingdom, where she currently lives. After a long hiatus, she rediscovered her love of art through a different medium, collage.
Making art has always been an essential part of my life; I experimented with diverse techniques before eventually coming across collage, which completely captivated me. I prefer to work with analogue material usually sourced from magazines and newspapers, as I find the process of collecting and compiling images with different colours and textures deeply rewarding. Some of my recurring themes are the depiction of women and nature or urban settings which are broken down into several layers to create a fantastical or surrealist atmosphere. In addition, a lot of my work features torn pieces of text; I like to delve into the relationship between written words and images and create a sense of narrative; each piece thus encapsulates a story, though the message behind it often remains ambiguous. I am interested in both the disruptive and constructive qualities collage brings to the table, and ultimately not knowing exactly where the creative process will lead me.
