Introduction to the work of Anna C

Female artist, living in Belgium

A search for esthetically expressive associations concerning body, portrait, sexuality and symbolism from a female perspective.
With special attention for the game of contradictions between might and inability, latency and freedom and the poetic power out of ‘rough, cold’ images. With emphasis on the pictorial female view.

If someone is interested in buying my work, please contact me for more details.

" Anna Cuyper’s, from the Flemish part of Belgium stages, performs, and photographs her art.
The Flemish artist is beautiful, and brilliant.

Unfortunately she lives in great pain, struck with debilitating Rheumatoid Arthritis seven years ago.
Successive surgeries and a neck prosthesis are not working. Frequent hospital and pain clinic
visits have replaced her job as a professional social worker and psychotherapist.

Anna releases anger and depression by creating her unique brand of art. She engages us in a
game of contradictions, between strength and weakness. With the poetic power of some
Shakespearean tragedy, Cuypers’ art alludes to her keen interest in opera, drama, and the human psyche.
She is her own best model. Once you dare to really look, you cannot take your eyes off of Anna Cuypers. "
