Omschrijving werk

Anat is an internationally reputed and established contemporary artist. She lives and works in the Hague, the Netherlands and has participated in many exhibitions at various museums and galleries in the Netherlands and other venues in Europe such as Belgium, Italy, England and Scotland. She has realized private and public significant commissions as well as projects for the municipality of the Hague, NL. from re-designing a city park (tromptuin) to the great holocaust memorial monument at the center of the city. Internationally she has exhibited in places like Pune/India, New york, Miami, Buenos Aires and Venice. To name just a few. Her work is published in different books and generously in the media. Anat creates a complex and intricate visual works using a variety of technics, which she combines in an authenticate manner. From video art, to installations and surrealistic bronze en stone sculptures. from ethnic patterns to abstractism. The underlying essential statements and narratives behind her works deal directly with her experiences of multiculturalism and switching frameworks. it aims to bridge extremes by embracing opposites: secular and holy, traditional and contemporary, order and chaos. Artist statment: Transformations in cultural frameworks and the annexation by overwhelming waves of extreme shifts of mind, often leads to the temptation to abandon the challenges of sophistication and seek the warm cradle of traditions. I often use this concept as a canvas to illustrate the vicissitudes of existence over time, emphasizing the thin line between primitive and supreme - That, as an attempt to challenge the infinite conflicts between creeds and cultures and distinguish the essence of separate entities.
