Annie Sandano - Painting
Annie Sandano merges cultural factors from Brazil and New Zealand; assembling, collating and hybridizing to reconfigure our traditional visual vocabulary. Sandano’s prints create a narrative of contemporary folklore with references to modern illustration, traditional Japanese woodcuts and the respective histories of decorative and fine arts in Brazil and New Zealand. She works across a variety of fine art mediums, adapting traditional fine art practices to a contemporary context. Following her highly coveted collection of limited edition wood cut prints, Sandano has recently embarked on a series of colourful geometric abstract painted compositions.
