MA Drawing, Wimbledon College of Arts 2017
Anna's work explores the internal experiences of the body, expressing this through drawing, writing and printing. She feels that through our body language we show the physical materialisation of our emotions using gestures and movements.
Moreover, Anna's practice reflects the meaning of human interactions. She believes that every motion we make with our body is a communication of our desire for intimacy, this longing for contact is projected through sexuality as well, but rather than interpreting this as a mere instinct to procreate, this should be recognised as a reflection of the human yearning for empathy and sharing.
This representation of human sensuality aims to compliment a rise in the current emancipating culture we are experiencing as a society; encouraging people to experiment and determine their own pleasure free from the hegemonic imagery that we are all too often directed towards.
