Anki Linderoth was born and still lives in south of Sweden. Colors and shapes are fundamental to her; she often sees her surroundings in the form of pictures. Despite this, and her interest in art and design, she chose the theoretical path and took a Master of Law and, a couple of years later, a degree in journalism.
After many years working first as a lawyer and then as a journalist she decided to change direction in life and give time for her artistic interests. Since attending different shorter art programs in painting, croquis and sculpting she went to Falkenbergs School of Art, KG II. Here she started experimenting with different materials in a more abstract way. Photography, often processed digitally, together with paintings are now the tools in which she preferably expresses herself, maybe because it’s in the narrative art she feels most at home. Her artwork has its roots in street- and pop art, artforms that give her the most creative inspiration. In her own creative work, she frequently returns to people, faces, assorted fragments of life, solitude and relationships. Those issues as a form of searching for the sense of self fascinates her. Anki´s digital work is printed either on HD floating metal, brushed aluminum, Fine Art Paper, canvas, fabrics or plexiglass.
“ The artwork shown here in my exhibitor profile are photo collages. I have used my photos of withered flowers in an attempt to capture the transient life, the fragility of it and how rapidly it elapses and fade. But I have also searched for the beauty in all what is withering and the brittle expression of what is about to evanesce, like in a final swan song. Ballet and dance in general are a source of inspiration for me, I try to bring about both a sensitive movement together with an ambiguous depth by building my photos layer by layer. In general, I work both abstract and figurative but regardless my pieces often tend to express a dreamlike state”.
