Anne Sophie Lorange
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 works can be seen as fragments of an in-between existence touching aspects of sharing, belongingness and identity. She is exploring visual abstract passages through her paintings, drawings and installations that dissolve into the horizon as they pass into hidden revelations of a liminal, in-between space that is non-locatable. For as she creates, the untranslatable and the indeterminacy of the passing creative moment always eludes any form of translation or determinacy, remaining therefore endlessly in its own flux.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.

"My paintings, drawings and installations can be viewed as unstructured systems of abstract interpretations, studying in-between spaces of existence. Exploring our imagination and rediscovering life through escaping into the vast openness and seeing the possibility of change releases a hope in any structures and un-structures of language. Like an unseen sea of living beings, letting go of separation and exclusion, showing us to go beyond blindness into an intimate and subtle experience leaving behind traces of both the visible and invisible showing us to trust others through sharing the space of “being-with”"
