about

Anne Ben-Or

The shapes, lines and colors present me with a challenge. More and more I realize that the painting is the result of a dialogue between me and what I see. Exploring the visual realms nourishes the drive to continue the search. The attempt to bring New Harmony on the canvas is like praying. The goal of my work is for me the process of painting itself. When I paint, I try to look at the world as if for the first time. It is the ground on which a different reality is build.
