About

Anna is a member of RIVAA, and over the past few years, has presented many pieces there. Beyond the gallery, her work was featured in newspaper articles, in scientific conferences and in the streets of Manhattan. She describes her art:

I like to watch and then translate my experience into an object or painting, sometimes I can simulate that experience as an appetite. I have to taste it and digest its true colors, shapes or pattern. Since 2014 I have been traveling a lot and that made me think about how as an artist my landscape has changed. What is my role as an artist when I am not on my people’s land? When I am not reflecting on those I left behind? When enough time passes I start mythifying my past. I believe that some of my personal myths are also in our collective memory. I am looking for such formative moments for my work. I refer to culture and religion a lot in my work. At the same time, I am interested in the present as a women who is simply hungry for the landscape she looks at.
