It is a very fine line that successful Danish collage artist Anika Lori is dancing away on. Only small strokes of paint, plaster or glue can turn ugliness into aesthetic and mundane material into new insights and connotations â€“ and vice versa.
This fine line dualism is the universe of Loriâ€™s expressive work that already has brought her to attention in galleries in Copenhagen, London, Berlin and Paris. In Loriâ€™s collage works, the grotesque collides with gratifying beauty. Drawing equally on pop art and surrealism as well as pin ups and circus posters Lori creates a universe that appeals and provokes simultaneously.
