About this Artwork
Price: $275 AUD

I have referenced architectural shapes in the open curtains and on the wooden floor for the lecturn and have also referenced the colours in the abstract curtain shapes for the Monseur Madames Loyal. The clown became the strongest part of the image that I wanted to respond to. The clowns unusual shaped hat or head and the colours he wore became the highlight of my image. The Page I was given was: The Mills Circus, Painting by Dame Laura Knight R.A. The performers are awaiting their call to the sawdust ring. I however have turned it around with the Monsieur Madames Loyal making their calls from the other side of the curtain, from the ring.

I was inspired by an old print of a japanese warrior to make this 3D Giclee Print of three, Monsieur Madames Loyal, (Circus Ringleaders). This giclee print is presented in 3D form, on archival Platinum cotton 305gsm paper.

About Anne

I work from investigations and inspiration gained from an idea and or a found image that is further developed using a selection of media including abstract shapes, paint, drawing, digital manipulation, animation and by applying 3D techniques to cutouts.

My studio practice consists of found image, mixed media collage, still-life painting, digital imaging, photography and stop motion animation. These practices can sometimes be ephemeral, exist for a short time on instagram (annewarrenart) and will then are deconstructed and reformed into a brand new entity.
Work is created from a selection of images that have come together from a collection of old books from the 1960’s onwards. The process is one cut image laid out alongside another and so forth until a new entity emerges which is then often painted over or further manipulated for either an analogue or a digital image. Often the final image although most times is representational will have a surreal element about it.

About this Artwork
Price: 350 EUR
A circus between the lines is an interpretation of an already created circus. 

Searching the lines, piece by piece, a new circus was found in the lines. Every line can be interpreted in so many ways, this is only one. This circus was found with a search for a circus in mind. If there was for example an ocean with whales in mind while searching the lines there would most definitely be some whales swimming there. What you already imagine is there is easier to find than what you don’t know could be there.

If you blur your eyes and look at something it is still the same thing but it looks different. Same as if you would turn yourself upside down or if you remove all essential colours but the black lines. With only the black lines left from the old circus a new circus was visible. One that is hidden in the forests with the circus crew waiting so long for the audience to show they started to grow together with the surrounding environment.

About Pernilla

Perniepaints, aka Pernilla Lindgren, is a Swedish artist born in Stockholm, Sweden. Pernilla grew up close to beautiful, big forests and the love for nature is a big inspiration for the works. The artist started painting with only one black marker, and that marker has followed the artwork since the start.

The artist creates both smaller paintings for indoor wall decoration and bigger murals for outdoor. Depending on the size of the painting different mediums like ink, acrylics, coffee and spray paint are used.

The artist prefers to use already existing objects when working rather than letting new ones be produced. Every one can make a small or big effort in order to try to to reduce the waste of material. A framed painting is most likely from recycled material.

The works of Perniepaints shows a playful interpretation of nature. It’s ok to explore without being able to explain. Humans exist only in the periphery while snails, mushrooms and frogs play the leading role
