Anuli Croon is a visual artist based in Rotterdam, The Netherlands.
a b o u t m y w o r k _ Patterns, hands, attitudes, objects, pieces of furniture, colours, gestures, mouths, clothing, hair styles, noses and eyes are disconnected and made autonomous. This way I can cause the elements with their antipodal meanings to move among one another. Contrasts such as stagnation and movement, reflection and stress, the great rhythm and detail are thus brought together.
m a t e r i a l _ t r a n s f o r m a t i o n I make my paintings as well as my works on paper (including those in copies) with the help of paint rollers, small brushes, Scotch tape, ruler, home-made stencils and stamps. For materials I use gesso, matt acrylic paint, fluorescent paint, metallic paint and crayons. The handwriting has no touch. The material is framed by tape, stencils and ruler. The texture is matt - except where metallic paint has been applied - and looks more like textile than paint. This springs from the idea to develop my own imagery from an analytical and detached modus operandi, in which the diversity of my artistic interests can be incorporated.
c o m m i s s i o n s In addition to my autonomous work in my studio _ paintings and work on paper _ I design in close consultation with the client for the public space in the technology that the situation requires; such as , mural_wall painting, wall-filling textile panels. glass applications/glassappliqué... Each work and each design is unique for the location.
