Profile / About
Anna Bjarnfoss is an icelandic visual artist who has been living in Denmark for 20 years. In 2015 she moved to Andalucien in Spain where she has her atelier and gallery. She works with acrylic and mixed media on canvas, paper and wooden boards.
Anna is currently inspired by american, abstract expressionism which she combines with sculptural, marble-like and sometimes surreal figures. Contrasts and emotions are keywords. Strong/weak, bright/dark, chaos/order, warm/cold and so on. 
What is normality? A question the artist comes back to again and again. Anna has an urge to describe -the inner-without words-. With the human body, or atmosphære, posure, face, color, paint, ink or pencil.
Humor is often one of the ingredienses. A very good and necessary contrast to often serious messages or situations in Annas works. There is an inner battle to be fought. About something that matters. Always. Each painting has it´s own atmosphære. Free for interpretation. 
Anna has been educated by several art schools and artists since 2006. She started exhibiting her work in 2013.
