About Sandy

Sandy Skoglund studied studio art and art history at Smith College in Northampton, Massachusetts. She went on to graduate school at the University of Iowa where she studied filmmaking, intaglio printmaking, and multimedia art, receiving her M.A. and her M.F.A. in painting.

Skoglund moved to New York City in 1972, where she started working as a conceptual artist, dealing with repetitive, process-oriented art production through the techniques of mark-making and photocopying. In the late seventies Skoglund”s desire to document conceptual ideas led her to teach herself photography. This developing interest in photographic technique became fused with her interest in popular culture and commercial picture making strategies, resulting in the directorial tableau work she is known for today.

"the colors and lines remind me of old barbie sets. idk why."

"Is that Gayle Gleason?"

"Jerry is right - don't judge an artist by two pieces of work, go to their website."

"YOU HAVE GOT TO GO TO THE ARTIST'S SITE AND SEE HER BODY OF WORK. Two images DO NOT do her justice. I think I'm in love."


"This is very different and funny! Love the color too."

"oh I love it! -these two images immediately took me back to child-hood in a small town in the mid-west where there was "Besse's Cafe" w/the oil-cloth booth tablesthe coke and pepsi art on the walls.. and of course the cigarette machine where you drop one quarter for a pack. me and my friends would collect empty pop-bottles at 2 cents apiece till we could slip into the cafe and quickly buy a pack to share and run before old Besse could catch us!Thank-you again Sandy, for the little visit back in time!"

"Exciting work.I love the inovative use of photo tinting to create strong hues full of emotion, tension, and movement throughout the compositional arrangement. So much to see and relate to - love this artist."

"I like these, they are modern yet old at the same time. The concept is original, this is not an easy thing to do. Great job."

"Sorry, I just couldn't get into this artists paintings. Art is subjective. Some may think it's fabulous. I found it uninteresting."
