I am...
exhibiting art in the Chicago area and internationally. My works evoke a disjointed world, yet connections between objects are suggested serene enigmas in the chaos of life.
About my artwork
"Identity" is crucial, but is seen too narrowly. It is searched for in gender and politics. Identity is not just these things. Every civilization and nearly every individual has sensed and continues to sense something larger. As a civilization comprised of many peoples and struggling with gender and political issues, Americans sense this need, as is seen in rising religiousness and in the religious fervor of politics and causes we subscribe to. We might reference, from our own unique identity on this continent, a resolution to the issue of greater identity. This reference is Emerson.

Emerson, the American Philosopher, showed us a path that combined all elements, even opposites, into a Cosmos, a whole he called Oversoul.

My works reflect Oversoul, as it incorporates the opposites of living. These opposites include the now and the infinite, the ethnic and the universal, the bold and the shy, the joyous and the sad, and the light and the dark. Our identity is huge.
Artists I like
Jasper Johns, Joseph Cornell. Richard Diebenkorn, Sally Mann, and Bill Viola. Equally influential are Heraclitus, E.O. Wilson, Quantum Dynamics, and Basho.

Thank you Stanley! Love your work! How right you are...Pop Surrealism is about my disjointed family so it is very personal! I do think I have been lost for awhile now, specifically because I moved to the Middle East where although accepted...contemporary art is a LOT different and can be VERY frustrating most of the times! I got stuck in doing "Pretty" paintings. Demand Demand! I think it is time to dig deeper.

 

Cheers

Anna

...or, I could just be goofing off about amputation. This is most likely.
If you want more words about my work, you can go to where there's a studio log and lots of other words as well as art.
Meanwhile, I've got to get a face like yours. How cool. Coming and going at the same time.
