Sirene Women - Anna Alexandra
Anna-Alexandra is a visual artist, poet and culturologist - we adore her interpretation of island living, seen through her Instagram page with visual snippets of Balearic food, art and culture. This month she cast her feminine spell over some of our Spring pieces and the resulting imagery was beautiful as expected.
Where are you originally from and where do you live now?
I am originally from Bulgaria but I have been living in Mallorca for three years now. I love the island.
How would you describe your art and what inspires you artistically?
My art is deeply connected and inspired by my passion for ancient culture, mythology and philosophy. I’m aways thinking of how to reach and express through abstraction the sublime feeling of the relation between nature and feminine energy (same that I feel, when reading ancient myths). Im very influenced by the primitive art and by the primordial female figure. Many of my projects are about the feminine image, the mysterious and magical feminine nature and its connection to the earth and to the circle of life.
My method is connected to the real interaction between my body and the canvas, paints and other materials. I want people to feel emotionally connected to the content of my work.
Art for me is more about subconscious experience than the interpretation of an intellectual concept.
What is your favourite song to dance to?
I love opera, classical music and jazz, but if I had to choose easy music to dance on I would say Italian music from the 60’s. I really liked this music because it immerses me in a movie atmosphere.
