Sandy Skoglund is a celebrated American photographer, installation artist and sculptor.
Her art often features surreal serialized animal and human forms set in dramatic, colored studio sets that routinely elicit a distinct sense of familiarity, discomfort, and humor – often in the viewing of a single work.
Skoglund’s substantial body of artwork has been reviewed in the New York Times, Artforum, Artnews, Newsweek, the Washington Post, and numerous other prominent periodicals. Her works have been published in such books as The Photography Book, Dictionary of Modern and Contemporary Sculpture, and Visions From America, among dozens of others.
Her art has been featured in numerous exhibitions in such institutions as the Centre Pompidou in Paris, the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Bordeaux.
Her works are held in the permanent collections of the J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, among many others.
Skoglund earned a B.A. in studio art and art history at Smith College in Northampton, Massachusetts and earned both an M.A. and an M.F.A. in painting in 1972 from the University of Iowa.
Skoglund lives and works in Jersey City, New Jersey and teaches at Rutgers University in Newark, New Jersey.
