Ann-Lisbeth Sanvig

Innocence contra decadence. Aesthetics contra sensuality. Femininity contra masculinity. Seriousness contra humor. By using symbolic references and ambiguities in my artwork I intend to express, that life is not always, what it seems to be. My inspiration is often vintage photos of women in piquancy postures. Today these pictures seems more innocent compared to contemporary pictures, but it is still the same issue. I put them in another context combined with subtle details of odd or eccentric and humoristic elements. I try to put myself in their place. Therefore, in my artwork, the women have distanced themselves to us – the spectators or voyeurs – in order to maintain their inner integrety.
