Matilda Forsberg's paintings explore family dynamics, heritage, identity, and perception. Her practice is inspired by the complexities of family and cultural tradition, and its emotional and psychological influence on individuals as independent beings. Often sourcing imagery from family photo archives she is interested in what emerges when looking closely at captured moments from the past and the implications of memory on the narrative.  Her work frequently features figures in group settings, their individuality blurred and mutable, but not erased, occupying dream-like spaces inspired by the Nordic landscape.

Originally from Sweden, Matilda Forsberg currently lives and works in New York and New Jersey.  Her work has been exhibited in New York, Los Angeles, Portland, OR, and Sweden. She is currently a resident artist at Aferro Gallery in Newark, NJ.  She received her BFA in Painting from Pacific Northwest College of Art in Portland, Oregon.
