Introducing...

 

We’ve added some new faces to the gallery over the last year and a half and we’re excited for you to get to know them and their work.   

We were introduced to Anna Lambrini Moisiadis’ work when she participated in Project Spaces during last year’s Artstop.  Her installation at BNIM Architects was a stand out and one of our favorites amongst the public art exhibits. So when she agreed to participate in our annual Small Works Show, and then to join the gallery, we were thrilled. 

Anna's paper sculptures Chimera 2  and Lift at BNIM Architects for Project Spaces, 2012

These small pieces from her series Lilika, were inspired by the intricate lacework and embroidery her grandmother used to make. With this kind of handwork, repeated movements create spaces, little windows, that let light through and transform the textile into something delicate and beautiful.

Anna writes “I use the same artistic process to create my artwork, turning commonplace mediums, like paper and thread, into a diversely layered object, which entices the viewer to explore the depths of its metamorphosis.  Through this way of working, I have made aesthetic discoveries: specifically, the importance of the touch of the hand and the imperfections left behind.  These imperfections are the layers of the art process.  They are the history of the piece and reflect what it means to be human: an endeavor for perfection with the limitations of our physiological and psychological state.”

Born in Boston, Massachusetts, Anna spent many summers in her father’s hometown of Ioannina in Northwestern Greece. The colors and textures of this region of the Mediterranean were the foundation and inspiration of her art career.  She received her Bachelors in Liberal Arts from Hampshire College, in Amherst MA, with a concentration in printmaking, and her MFA from UW-Madison in 2009.  Her work has appeared in a number national and international shows, including a piece at the National Academy Museum in New York City, 3 pieces at the Hellenic Museum in Chicago, and a piece in a traveling show, Objectivos Moviles/Moving Targets, that originated in Buenos Aires and moves throughout South America.

Her articulate sensibility is exactly what makes Anna’s work shine. It’s incredibly thoughtful, but not over-thought. For some artwork, a small tear in the paper or unraveled piece of thread could mean it was “damaged”, for Anna’s work, it would add meaning – and that’s refreshing.
