Contemporary painter Anna Geerdes conveys a surrealist landscape featuring an omnious beach scene. This intriguing scene powerfully presents a juxtaposition of unusual subject matter and phenomenal natural imagery. Each vista is painted with realist brushstrokes, knitting together purposely distorted perspectives and tilted grounds with impressive palpability. These menacing atmospheres are rendered in natural hues. This original artwork is painted in oils on linen, hand signed by the artist, and ready to be displayed.
In this series the artist states “The dream I often dream of is that of a world without borders, fences, barbed wire, passport control etc. It would be my utopia but in reality it feels unattainable in the world today.”
Investigating the symbolism of borders and boundaries in this range of artwork, a contemplation on the shifting circumstances of the present day is evinced, making this piece a deeply profound, compelling vista.
