Camilla Engström,

@ cooler gallery
— 

Inside your soul
you'll find gold...
” 

The exhibition:
 
Follows on from 
the Swedish–born /
New York–based 
artist's 1st solo with 
Deli Gallery in 2016, 
and features new 
figurative paintings by 
Engström, presented 
alongside a series 
of clay sculptures  
installed throughout 
the gallery, which 
are intended to depict 
singular elements 
of her paintings. 

Title reference:
 
FLORA’ describes 
surreal landscapes 
textured with playful 
foliage & atmospheric 
brushstrokes. 

‘Husa’: 

Swedish for 
“housemaid”. 
— 
Engström's practice
commonly centers
itself around a
cartoon figure
named Husa, who is
a gender-morphing,
plump character
created to function
not only as an
extension of the
artist, but also
an alter ego & a
representation of
one’s psychological
state.
