Ana Rocha, Brazil
Philosophy and Art are universes that have many elements in common. Both reflect the reality in relation to the human being. Through a metaphorical language, they also cover the spiritual world, the relationships among individuals and their interaction with the environment. The brazilian artist Ana Rocha, navigates between these two worlds.
Ana was born in Brasília and started her artistic career in São Paulo, where she lives for over 20 years. Her imminent graduation in Philosophy completes an artistic vein in wich she uses Geometric Abstraction to express her concepts and thoughts. The origin of this language is inspired by an affective memory. Her mother was a university professor of Geometric Design and Descriptive Geometry and her students´ works enchanted the young Ana. Other striking elements in Ana Rocha´s work are the courage, the boldness to seek an increasingly deep process of self-knowlegde and the coherence to say "no" to standards, to ready formulas.
In Ana´s own words, she, who never fit in the "boxes", found herself in Philosophy and Art, spheres that showed her the meaning of life. Her artworks begin to gain space on the web and at exhibitions that reveal an elaborate, intriguing and engaging artistic work to the world. Where we realize that ascending and descending lines portray our own trajectory, with its ups and downs. the succession of tones, like the seasons, defines the rhythm, the cadence, making the observer identify with shapes that tell his own story, his life. An identification that is the main reason of this very philosophical art.
Anastasia Kolosnitsyna was born in Krasnodar, Russia. In 2017, she graduated from the Art and Graphic Faculty of the Kuban State University, specializing in Web design. In 2017, Kolosnitsyna created her own art studio, where she teaches drawing, watercolor and oil painting.
Anastasia Kolosnitsyna has only recently entered this artistic world, which is open to innovations and does not reject traditions. The craft acquired during her studies was the start that allowed her to freely handle materials, to work in different genres.
The young artist found freedom from academism, realized that it is not necessary to hide their fantasies. She took the path that allowed her to enter into a dialogue with the entire world's artistic heritage. And along the way, Kolosnitsyna found herself. Her interest in self-portrait, which allows combining the subjective and the objective is not accidental. A distinctive feature of her self-portraits is the lack of idealization, the desire to convey not what she sees, but what she thinks (in the words of Pablo Picasso).
Even in the actual realistic works made in the technique of oil painting, she is not interested in air and perspective, but in the desire to reveal the decorative qualities of the portrayed objects, colors, to understand the soul of things, and not their visible flesh.
Anastasia Kolosnitsyna has already passed the path from the postmodern era to metamodernism, which accumulates modern multicultural aesthetics. The artist travels a lot, goes to plein air in Ukraine, Crimea, the Czech Republic, Germany, Abkhazia, and Armenia. She lives in a colorful world that is open to any cultural ties. It has the energy of youth, which seems that everything is possible. He enjoys playing with styles, techniques, and directions. He searches and finds himself and the universe in himself.

She try to enter into the contrast between the Old and the New. Anja Bamberg says:"I know some places only through the photographs, which give me a feeling that I like to implement picturesquely. Others I visited myself and depict the atmosphere from my point of view. The material I use is usually a mix of oil and acrylic colors on canvas or paper, advanced with oil crayon and pens."
