Anja Schwörer – Berlin Based Artist

Anja Schwörer has in many ways been an inspiration and source of reference for many of the “younger” artist today. Anja´s process is quite interesting, and visually her works are just above amazing.

Utilizing bleach as her medium, similar to how light is used in a photographic process, the images are burned into the canvas while allowing the bleach to yield fluctuations of color, shifting spatial tensions and variant values of positive and negative space. 

Through navigating a shifting ground between chance and necessity Schwörer’s canvases offer a disjunction between the raw deconstruction of their materials and the splendor of their imagery.
