IN YOUR FACE

Anuli Croon's colourful, severely structured paintings automatically activate the beholder's reservoir of associations: images and impressions of mysteriousness, ambiguity, references to primitive art, comic characters and commercials, everyday household items, fabric patterns and universal symbols for human gestures and body language are just a few of the elements of her imagery.

Anuli Croon's colourful, severely structured paintings automatically activate the beholder's reservoir of associations: images and impressions of mysteriousness, ambiguity, references to primitive art, comic characters and commercials, everyday household items, fabric patterns and universal symbols for human gestures and body language are just a few of the elements of her imagery.

On closer consideration, however, more signs of ambiguity pop up in the image: does the one figure in the series 'Mug & City' wrap his arms around the other to protect him or do we see the very opposite, a kind of hostile stalking, enforcing subjection? The word 'mug' in the title seems to refer to an unpleasant character, but at the same time the colourful, schematically represented faces of the figures call forth more amiable associations. All these paradoxical qualities of openness and mysteriousness, of decorative playfulness and profundity are typical of the work of this remarkable painter.

What is it about your studio space that inspires you?

nobody there but me and the work.

What sounds, scents and sights do you encounter while in your studio?

in my studio I listen to music like The Black Angels, Joan As Police Woman, Junior Kimbrough, The XX, Angel Olsen, 18+, Sleaford Mods and many others. When I am in need for voices from the outside world I will listen on the internet to talks and interviews. And I can work for days in complete silence.

What is your favourite material to work with? How has your use of it evolved throughout your practice?

my paintings as well as my works on paper I make with the help of paint rollers, small brushes, Scotch tape, ruler, home-made stencils and stamps. For materials I use gesso, matt acrylic paint, fluorescent paint, metallic paint and crayons. The handwriting has no touch. The material is framed by tape, stencils and ruler. The texture is matt - except where metallic paint has been applied - and looks more like textile than paint. This springs from the idea to develop my own imagery from an analytical and detached modus operandi, in which the diversity of my artistic interests can be incorporated.

What themes do you pursue?

my paintings and works on paper show constructions that represent figures, interior, landscape and parts of cities as autonomous identities _ the figures as well as the urban fragments are composed of an assemblage of visual elements of different origins.
