Former Staten Island artist scores big-time commission:

Ex-St. George artist Malin Abrahamsson has become Valley Stream's premier contemporary artist. She recently won an $87,000 commission to develop site-specific art for the town’s new Long Island Rail Road stationhouse. Working in smalti (mosaic) and ceramic tile, the artist produced panoramas that bring the sky right into the new station.

The ordinary course of events might not take you to, say, Valley Stream, the picturesque Nassau County village on the Sunrise Highway.


But now, there’s a reason to drop by.


Ex-St. George artist Malin Abrahamsson has become the community’s premier contemporary artist.


Abrahamsson recently won an $87,000 commission to develop site-specific art for the town’s new Long Island Rail Road stationhouse.


Working in smalti (mosaic) and ceramic tile, the artist produced panoramas that bring the sky (with seagulls), local lawns (with Canada geese) and local architecture (a pleasant wood-frame house) right into the new station.


As always, the cool imagery reflects the artist’s ruthless self-editing. There are no extraneous elements, only an exacting sense of simplicity. Last week, she explained: "I’m playing with ideas of inside vs. outside, representation vs. reality, the illusion of space vs. physical space."


Born in "the sticks of northern Sweden," the artist moved to New York in 1995. She had several shows at the Newhouse Gallery when she lived in St. George.


Since then she’s been represented in shows in Beijing, Brooklyn, Shelter Island and Rochester, N.Y.
