About the artist
1973: Was born in Skallsjo, Sweden
Anna Bjerger’s fascination is in the construction of an image. She works from photographs.
Having found an image it might lie around her studio for some years while she absorbs its essence. The photographs she chooses all have an inherent interference, either in the photographic process such as vaseline or coloured filters on the lens, or oil and turps stains from Bjerger’s studio. When painted, these disruptions cause the viewer to rethink the image and take a slower look.
