Under the title "Devenir", Gallery Melbye-Konan exhibits new artworks by the contemporary artist Anna-Belén at the Alsterhaus Hamburg from 04 November 2022 to 04 March 2023.
"Devenir" implies the becoming of nature, of the human, of the environment. Technically inspired by the abstract expressionists Jackson Pollock and Mark Rothko as well as by the contemporary artist Gerhard Richter, Belén created engagingly diverse colour compositions under the theme, which bear witness to colour dripping, structuring and blurring.
With her all-over paintings, she leads viewers into experiential spaces, causing them to project memories and profound emotions onto the canvas, in which even figurative impressions seem to arise. Through a process of self-reflection, what is normally only visible to the mind is made visible to the physical eye. In this process, those impressions of nature, of becoming and new becoming, of the infinity, of the continuous cycle, arise. The consciousness is offered a sinking into the play of colours of time on a map of emotions.
During her time at the College of St. Blasien she specialised in art, after which she studied in Berlin and Hamburg. She had her debut in 2020 at the Melbye-Konan Gallery. Furthermore, one of her works was selected to be presented at the Institut Français (Hamburg) on its 70th anniversary in Germany.
