We might call it « magic realism » in the sense that each painting of Anne Christophorov aims to create an atmosphere, accomplished to its end, and it is this atmosphere that intrigues the eye, while her work emphasizes that painting lives when it is rooted in the depths of the human being, as Kandinsky wanted it.
Three recurrences inhabit her oil paintings, watercolors and tapestries:
the house, suggesting the presence of a humanity barely guessed; the tree that forms into a heaven; and the fish, showcase of the world below.
The artist paints the feelings of these humans she does not display: anxiety as the joy of life.
This strange painting, somehow away from the traditional plastics principles a critical eye is used to, this particular approach which seems essential, these dreams where everything is determined by the impulsive and pantheistic feelings of the artist and finally this « It is important to love » as Anne named one of her inspired paintings
When I first saw the works of Anne Christophorov, a door suddenly opened.
Anne takes us with her forcefully in her brilliant world of color and originality.She wanders sovereignly into a flaming imaginary world whose discovery is a delight and a revelation.
When the art lover contemplates the works of Anne Christophorov for the first time, immense is the surprise of discovering these assemblies of figurative and naive images, whose colors brighten her creations.Yet they are only the logic of her traditions, her style, her history.This unique painting of its kind goes straight to the heart.
