2020 Fall Exhibition > Anna Tjernlund

Wholly consumed by an overarching desire to experience the sublime, and inspired by the somber and dramatic aspects of the human condition, I create images and creatures with an unsettling beauty that lures the viewer in. A romantically macabre aesthetic takes the viewer to a place that feels like a sweetly dark fairytale. I blend contemporary with traditional approaches to art-making by maintaining a discerning taste for aesthetic quality, whilst keeping an open mind about which materials I allow myself to create with and which subjects I portray. Using nontraditional, or traditionally feminine materials and subjects in my work, I create a new dialect in the language of art.
