Anna is a Ukrainian artist who based in Slovenia. More than 16 years of her professional activity is related to art.
Nowadays she paints women’s portraits, those do not belong to any concrete person, like an emotion or state those don’t belong to everyone.
Cosmic, Entire, Illuminated, Infinite, Brave, Honest, etc – these states like cards during shuffling, are changed inside each woman. Anna describes them, enlarges them and shows those meaning for her as for an artist and for every woman generally. Using saturated colors Anna demonstrates the power of a woman, her strength and global influence on the World. She uses large canvases to evoke her feelings for others to see. Deep eyes, smooth and bright lines of cheeks and faces, all these are on a big scale, big as human life is.
At the present, paintings of Anna Miklashevich are in private collections in the USA, Canada, Ukraine, Slovenia, Italy, Swiss, Bulgaria, etc. She exhibits her paintings all over the World, also in the USA.
Anna sees the colors of emotions and interprets them as expressive as she feels. She tells stories on canvases and paints to see the reality of feelings, not just by receiving information through eyes, but by inputs of everyday life challenges. Then there are large canvases to evoke these feelings for others to see. To emphasize and enlarge them – meanings and importance of the inner process of every being. Deep eyes, smooth and bright lines of cheeks and faces, all these are on a big scale, big as human life is. Nowadays she paints portraits, those do not belong to any concrete person, like an emotion that does not belong to everyone. And these portraits are her new beginning. She paints mostly women, gentle and bright. She is in the process of understanding whether these portraits are self-portraits or portraits of unknown women.
