Anne Sophie Lorange is born in Boston, MA in 1977.Growing up in the U.S and moving to Europe, opened her eyes to art as a way of looking freely at the world. She is focusing her art around liminal states of existence. her ideas and thoughts are personal yet cross-cultural and universal; her works can be seen as fragments of an in-between existence touching aspects of femininity, belonging and identity. She transforms written poetic passages into abstract visual lines showing liminal states of the invisible and visible, the concrete and the abstract. The paintings are spontaneous and fresh in a raw sense, confronting the spectator with a direct physicality, while revealing an ambiguous notion of an in-between state of freedom and creative power.
She is now finishing Summer 2013 MFA at Transart Institute &University of Plymouth, Berlin & New York. She has received scholarships during her MFA studies from the Transart Institute.
My paintings, drawings and installations can be viewed as a unstructured systems of abstract interpretations, studying in-between spaces of existence. I enjoy touching upon the invisible and visible, and the vague and amibiguous notions of a line exsiting free of time and space, floating in an in-between state. Finding a map with no directions, studying the lines; the essence of being lies in finding one’s own borderless map of existence."
