‘Karin Broos: Still Life’

Swedish artist Karin Broos made a name for herself as an abstract painter, but then pivoted to hyperrealism. She makes her U.S. debut with “Still Life,” a collection of paintings portraying people in nature, wading through lakes, sitting on shores, floating in water or traversing a mountainous landscape. On the flip side, she is also curious about domestic and medical spaces. Regardless of where she positions her subjects, they are usually women and girls, lost in their own worlds, performing some sort of typically feminine gendered role. Sometimes she is a nurse folding sheets. Other times, a mother. (10 a.m.-5 p.m. Fri.-Sat., Tue. and Thu.; noon-5 p.m. Sun.; 10 a.m.-8 p.m. Wed. Ends Oct. 29. American Swedish Institute, 2600 Park Av. S., Mpls. $5-$10. 612-871-4907, asimn.org.)
