until 28.02. | #1867ARTatBerlin | Galerie Martin Mertens shows from 23rd February 2018 the exhibition “Fragments of Art” by the artist Anna Schiller.
Anna Schiller celebrates Première at Martin Mertens gallery. Under the title FRAGMENTS OF ART, Anna Schiller presents her best works of art between the 23rd and 28th of February. The exhibition offers an exciting and unique development of a woman who has already gone through many stages in her life. Even as a child, she was influenced by art, literature and music in a family of artists. In the late 1990’s her family immigrated from Kazakhstan to Berlin. The previous life journey was not always easy. In her works, the autodidact uses the abstract motifs and colors to process her experiences, thus telling her own personal story.
For Anna, painting does not only mean the freedom to express oneself and to present its interior to the outside, it “embodies much more a reality that reveals the soul in the most intimate way”.
It is important to her to touch the viewer and to contribute to the inspiration and personal development. At the same time, the exchange of artists among each other is crucial. Anna does not see it as a competitive pressure, but on the contrary as a mutual incentive and support, which she also proves on her own homepage annaschillerart.com under the heading “Kunsteinblicke”. With this platform, Anna offers other artists the space to advance, to showcase and support one another in a lively artist exchange.
Anna’s motto “painting cultivates the eye and the soul at the same time” does not describe art as work or product, rather as inspiration and the pursuit of the beauty of spiritual creation without moral limits. Anna’s style can not be described in one sentence, her abstract art is all-embracing, boundless and impulsive. In her paintings, she interprets her own story for each work.
Schiller’s paintings, both acrylic on canvas and prints on paper, move at the interface between abstraction and reality. Each picture develops a life of its own, in which the colors interact with forms and other materials. With innovative artistic perspectives and techniques, such as the further development of monotype, she creates an end result that is a powerful reflection of her soul life and challenges the harmony and aesthetics of our time.
Anna Schiller says:
“With my abstract art, I want to let the viewer develop his own story in his head. The names of my pictures are named after the places in my life that have left their mark on me after a short or long stay. So the viewer has a tendency of me and is free through the colors and shapes to develop the rest for themselves. “
The vernissage on February 24 from 4 pm pays homage to the art itself. Martin Mertens Galerie will be showing the artworks, accompanied by a professional pianist. For this all art lovers are invited in Berlin.
Furthermore, Anna Schiller will bring the art into the public space, in which she paints live in the gallery on February 27, thus initiating the audience into the process of creating the images.
Anna Schiller’s entire exhibition and the artist can be seen daily between February 23 and February 28 between 11 am and 8 pm in the Galerie Martin Mertens.
