Anna Rocke

Anna's work acts as a safe and free space to explore the awkward and fragile interaction between familiar and unfamiliar spaces. Painting from memory, she naturally condenses images from first and second hand experiences using incessant patterns, providing a liminal space, in which these realities or fantasies can exist in their distorted, fragmented and transitory form. Uncanny figures and objects are held between areas of pattern, so reality is reordered, and space loses its logic. Shapes and figures have a slight distortion, which serves to reflect the warping of memory. Little clues to their place in time are left, ambiguous narratives evolve to appear unrecognisable, disorientating the viewer and creating a timeless betwixt space.
