Anna explores the essence of Renaissance painting. During the lockdown Anna had the impression that time stopped and the sudden silence was a great help in focusing on her work. She started a close conversation with European painters from Giotto to the Renaissance : Piero della Francesca , Titian, Rubens, Durer, up to some 18th century painters such as Fragonard and Boucher. She has seen their works many times in the Louvre, in Florence in Rome and every time is enchanted and
hypnotized. In those paintings there are all the answers to existence.

Since she lives in New Zealand having Europe with its culture, its art and its history so physically distant both relieves her and sharpens her sense of belonging. Her Master years at the Maori studies have had a positive influence on her work in the sense of motivation. Lately, her encounter with some Maori artists has contributed a lot to turning to her own culture and artistic heritage.

In this body of work she wants to propose a personal vision on European paintings from 1300 to 1500. Angels, princesses, knights, animals and plants coexist in a dreamworld, hoping to communicate to the viewer some ‘answers to existence’ as well as my passion for color and movement.
