ARTIST STATEMENT

gclogo_gray.png

My name is Anna Linberger, I was born in Russia and now base in Strausberg, Germany

I am an Illustrator, Artist and founder of a brand ball-jointed-dolls Gentle Creation.

As an artist, I've been always interested in the combination of incompatible, figurative and abstract, classical and modern. Contrasts make see the versatility of things brighter. Nothing is unequivocal, this is what I try to show in my works. 


I've always been attracted to ornate patterns, maps, classical art of old masters and the freedom of the abstract art. I don’t choose what inspires me, I combine it - this is how my paintings and dolls are born. 


In my works I want to show a feminine view of things, the topic of gender is very interesting and important for me, and I will explore it not only in the motives of my work, but also through the technique that I use. Embroidery and dolls was always considered a classic female art, or rather, needlework or craft, which has always been underestimated in the world of contemporary art, although this is the same method of creating a work that is not inferior to painting or sculpture. And these techniques found me after a years of searching for myself and my style, but it was worth everything just listen to your inner desires and accept yourself and your self-identification as a female artist. I  am a girl, who still plays with dolls and an artist who bring joy and beauty to the world.


When I create my work, I immerse myself in the details, in the process, I inspired with the root causes of the events of my life and the life of society in the modern world. Earlier I tried to escape the manifestations of my femininity at work in the past, now I have given her free rein.
