Anna Kot

As an abstract artist, Anna’s concerns are partly to do with ambiguities of space and depth and also to do with exploring the structural elements of visual language – the syntax of line and form alongside the semantics of colour.

Her photographs reflect and reinforce these concerns. With no manipulation once an image is taken, Anna seeks to present patterns either from the structure and shapes in the world around her or from ambiguous distortions found in reflections. The resulting images are almost abstract and sit well with her geometric oil paintings. The line, form and colour in both her photographic work and her paintings are not only the means of composition but also the subject. But the arrangement of these elements, also often invite the viewer to look again and thereby creates a sense of the fuller dialogue that is involved when ideas are exchanged between people.
