Anna Sörenson "Neverending Index" @ Ed. Varie, NYCJuxtapoz // Tuesday, 08 Apr 2014
Ed. Varie is pleased to present Neverending Index, a solo-exhibition of recent work by artist Anna Sörenson, with opening reception on Thursday April 10th from 6-9pm. Neverending Index is a conceptual project that began in 2010 exploring the ideas of painting with water based media, collage, and text. The work explores a narrative that is more than an ordinary scrupulous examination of one's consciousness but also a reflection of Sörenson 's process and the relationship between mediums. Her paintings are minimal and geometric but never rigid with freeform objects effortlessly floating, merging and sometimes imposing upon one another within their condensed space. The impalpable elegance of the forms guide the viewer through a myriad of emotions while her transcendent use of watercolor are the legend to the landscape of the human condition: melancholia, hope, anxiety and loneliness, while maintaining a sense of equilibrium and fluidity within the confines of her paintings.
Sörenson received her BFA at Umeå University in Sweden and her MFA from Pratt Institute in New York. Her work has traveled the globe in select group and solo-exhibitions in Berlin, New York, Stockholm, and Umeå. She has been awarded numerous scholarships including the International and Fine Art scholarship from Pratt and a Fulbright scholarship. Sörenson just completed a post-masters program in Brussels; Neverending Index will be her second solo show with Ed.Varie. Anna Sörenson is based in Stockholm.
