ABOUT

STATEMENT

Anna, creates her drawings or paintings taking inspiration from the masterpieces of Old Master painters, but giving them a strong contemporary presence, too. Looking at her works, with a careful observation, we can not ignore the sense of aesthetic and imagination, mystery and symbolism, poetry and memory that wafting by her works. She says: “The reason they appear as they are, is that, I like permeate each subject with the spirit of the contemplative life, because every little living soul is a part of an “Eternal Whole”. Absolutely primary for me, is that my creatures tell a story about the figure’s presence and the self essence, taking the shape from light and shadows, vibrant emotion of a timeless moment”.
