Annika's Artist Page
My artworks seek authentic encounters with reality. I draw entirely from life observation, challenging myself to see truthfully both to the external object in front of me and my internal feeling, even as the paint on the page morphs and decays. Often, I do not know what my paintings will be and the results surprise me -- just as a gardener does not know what fruit a seed will become, but faithfully waters regardless. I hope for my paintings to produce intimate, variable responses in the viewers beholding it.
Description: A turtledove, a symbol of Christ, spreads its wings beneath ice. Its death severs it from the kneeling girl, and more poignantly: its eternal life preserved within its death.
