A text by Bernard Gonzalez, English translation Sarah Davey
"A landscape only exists through the eye of the beholder. It is a fragment of space chosen amongst many other options. It exists both through its depth and its limits. The relationship of time to the landscape is only revealed through a series. In Anna Renström's work, the way the work is cut out in an undulating fashion makes the effect of the outline much less significant than in a more conventional format. It suggests no « offscreen » reference ; the spectator has the impression that the work is complete. Moreover, the cut out leads to a certain flexibility in the graphics and composition thus distancing itself from the theory of the Golden ratio. The landscape is evoked more through the choice of colour and their relationships than through the drawing. The singularities are the visual expression which bring together perceptions of light, chromatic values, spatial and thermal impressions. The works are a sort of chromatic barometer that the spectator has to weave into his/her own perceptions. The smaller formats allow for a shorter time lapse between paintings and each work therefore reveals itself as being in synergy with others."
