MGP Andersen is fascinated by what we guess at; the stories we don’t tell. The ways we perceive and deceive ourselves. Her haunting, surreal work questions society, and our relationship with ourselves and each other. Violence, alienation, addiction, secrets, obsession, desire, as well as love and courage are frequent themes. This San Francisco artist often starts work with an old photo. She then layers paint until form and color evoke deep, nameless feelings. Her paintings are half-forgotten dreams.
