Heavily influenced by Scandinavian architecture, Anne-Sophies work is about reducing forms to basic elements: structure, support and materials. Besides paint, she creates surfaces with materials such as clay, sand, cement or plaster. Influenced by her graphical background she uses images or visuals archived in her subjective memory to create a composition. Working mainly with large formats, she’s challenged by the conjunction of the idea of a form and the materials that she uses. Through deconstruction and reconstruction of the surface she works through a process where the final result goes beyond the subjective form of the original image. The value of a monochrome painting becomes a strategy or a technique. Its self-imposed limitations are often regarded as demanding or difficult, she finds it making her work quite alive and accessible. How light creates shapes in a composition. During the process she explores the physical effect light and color has on us, as well as the feelings a piece of work can evoke.
Anne-Sophie has been living many years in Oslo, Paris and London before settling down in Copenhagen.
Her work is to be found in private collections in Europe, Asia and the USA.
