ONE PIECE: Anna Lambrini Moisiadis

 

Our current exhibit is gorge, if you haven't seen it, get here soon. Anna Lambrini Moisiadis' work continues to surprise and amaze us. Here, she shares with us, and YOU a little about one the pieces from her newest body of work. The exhibit is on view until October 1. 

Beauty is essential in my art; beauty of imperfections, impermanence and incompleteness. My exploration tries to capture a balance of strength and fragility. It is in that struggle that I find beauty in imperfection.

Fall in 8, Found paper, copper leaf, ink, tape, 8 x 7 inches

The work is a record of my thoughts and experiences; a constant struggle of feeling courageous and insecure. This comes through, in part, with the materials I use. Metal and paper. Both have a warmth I am looking for. However, while metal conjures thoughts of solidity and strength, it can also be pliable and fragile. Similarly, paper can appear to be delicate and flimsy, but it is much stronger and holds a memory.

My art making process has always been rooted limitations. I place certain controls on the work, for example, in 'Fall In 8' I used the text and markings as my limitations; connecting lines with the punched holes, filling in interesting markings, and blocking out extraneous text. Circles continuously appear in my work. They represent the desire for perfection, but are, in fact, the reality...the imperfections, the mistakes, the beauty in our life. As in 'Fall In 8' the large circle is imperfect. The edges are wavy and bleed into different areas.
