According to the artist, her work is about identity and perception but at the same time it is about color, form and space. Textures are used as tools. That the thought process is similar to my life experience with bits and pieces of information, that it all becomes part of my narrative. I do not want my work to be easy to read, it needs to be discovered little by little, there are many symbols that hide among the layers and you can find them in all of my paintings, they all have a common thread, one that I will not reveal.

Anica Shpilberg. Museum Ghosts. 2011. Mixed media on canvas .47“Museum Ghost” is about the life of the many artists that form the collections of the many museums around the world, and what it would be like if they could all share their experiences with us, what could we learn that is not in the book, and how would they get along among themselves.

“Though my work I seek to bring awareness of the social and cultures realities that are patent in our world today. The starting points are the photographs that I take images of people and places that hope to capture their spirit, their beat, their struggle, and the feel of it all. I photograph them aiming to capture the reality and uniqueness of their lives and their environment. The photographs are then printed on canvas, allowing me to add perceptions at the scene, the uniqueness, emotions and contradictions that I felt, thus conveying the fullness of the intended message. Underlying this work, are the unexpected joys that arise from transformations: extracting and magnifying uniqueness while creating something altogether new.”
