Art is silent poetry
Artist Anna Sophia Rydgren, born 1972 in northern Sweden, is now living in Stockholm, where she also has her studio and runs ARY ART.
Color and form have always been a part of her life and she has always drawn and painted. She grew up in a artistic home where creation has been a natural part of life in the form of painting, clay, sewing, weaving.
As young, Anna Sophia attended a number of artschools and focused on the studies in the art of painting and croquis.
She has lived and worked abroad for a number of years, but is now back home in Sweden and will work on her own creations.
Anna Sophia mainly paints with larger brushes in acrylic and liquid ink, but uses other techniques as well ,such as palette knife and sponge, she also uses watercolors and oil crayons.
She likes to paint in abstract and modern minimalistic form and she is inspired by bodies and faces as well as simple organic forms from nature.
Structures in simplicity are something Anna Sophia is fascinated by and her works often go in grayscale as well as neutrals and pastels. The work is often flowing and intuitive on emotion.
She wants to give the viewer a sense of calm and harmony.
The future holds plans for a number of exhibitions, and her art is also attracted abroad by a number of interested collectors and galleries.
