An ardent art lover Anna Gerolymatou is a mixed media artist employing an experimental approach.
The creations are most of the times complex and retain a consistent emotional narrative component that is unique, sophisticated and often mysterious. She associates art with her dreams and it is the blending that illuminates optimism.
There are three elements compelling the production of her artworks. The first and most dominant is the sense of nostalgia and mystery. She may begin the process with shadowy notions but in many respects it is the force of curiosity about the past that holds her attention captive. She likes carrying it until the conclusion. The second influence is the power of story, both her own and that of others. Embedded in memory or immersed in thoughts, sometimes replaying the narrative of lives, perhaps to make sense of them, perhaps to extract threads of meaning. All current interacts with the past.
Lastly, the element of invention characterizes her artworks. She likes testing new ideas and new materials. Experimenting with found images, acrylics, stencils, and other materials she is creating artworks of layering, overlaying and collaging to extend her visual language.
She prefers to record positive emotions and by finding beauty in textures she is proposing an escape from the rigid world of business and numbers to the world of inspiration and hopes. The artworks are aiming at giving a link to sensuous dreamy scenes and offering the viewer an image of relaxation.
All her artworks are unique and not reproduced. She is participating in major art fairs and galleries in Europe and her work is held by both private and corporate collections. She also participates in various art projects that explore the intersection of artistic creativity and creativity in non-arts sectors.
