Come see what I’ve been working on the last few months! I have a show at Launchpad Gallery in September of all new work:
LIVES: PAST & STILL Alternating between still lives and paintings of people inspired by found photos, this show explores the magic and beauty of the fleeting moments and objects that leave indelible imprints on our lives. Whether we have emotional, aesthetic or financial attachments to objects, they can inspire us, remind us of someone or something important or simply set the mood in a space. Anna takes a fresh look at some of her favorite items collected over the years to discover how new relationships between them reshape what they mean and say. And by recreating scenes from past lives, she opens the door to new possibilities and stories that may or may not reflect the sentiment of the moment. After all, a glimpse into someone’s bygone memory can only take us so far, but curiosity about who they were or what they were doing can lead us down the magical path of our own imagination.
