Descrizione Opera / Biografia
Born in London, Annamarie Dzendrowskyj trained as a classical ballet dancer followed by a career as a PADI Scuba Diving Instructor/Examiner. She holds a BA Hons Degree in Philosophy ( Lancaster University UK) with speciality subjects in existentialism and aesthetics, and BA in Fine Art and a BA Honours Degrees in Painting (National Art School, Sydney, Australia). Based in London, she travels in search of new inspiration.
Dzendrowskyj seeks to examine the indeterminate nature of ’ways of seeing’ and ’ways of being’. She realizes the ambiguous ‘grey area’ between presence and absence by exploring the uncanny in fleeting moments of a world in constant flux. Moments in time she sees as suggesting a space, rather than defining a space, one that exists between what is seen and unseen, a zone of indiscernablity.
Indiscernable zones and spaces are at the heart of Dzendrowskyj’s life experiences which act as a catalyst for her work, bringing her empirical experience of life underwater to the surface. What is seen underwater is affected by interference - movement, light, weather conditions and in this sense, nothing appears clearly defined. This is reflected in her work which presents the emergence and dissolution of forms and settings in ethereal landscapes.
Employing a process of creation and erasure, concealing and revealing, her work evokes the sense of a netherworld conflating time, place, vision and memory. Exploring the tension between figuration and abstraction, inviting the viewer to challenge their perception of time, place and space.
