Anne Torpe (born 1981, Copenhagen, Denmark) holds a MFA from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in 2009.

Torpes works radiates every day scenarios in a movie like setting, bits of memory from a distant time, catching up with our contemporary lifestyle.

Through a radically singular approach Torpe uses references and ideas that are integrated into the process of the composition, creating both the scene, the humans and the figures in her topia. Where glamorous non-binary characters and the surroundings are morphing together in abstractions of perspective. A figurative cubism where the collage of colors and lines plays with the degeneration of an image.

By merging several seemingly incompatible worlds into a new universe, she uses a visual vocabulary where multilayered images arise in which the fragility and instability of our seemingly certain reality is questioned. The work incorporates time as well as space – a fictional and experiential universe that only emerges bit by bit.

Her paintings are a drawn reflection upon the art of painting itself, and therefore deeply inscribed in the history of modernism – made present most palpably in the artist’s exploration of some of the most hallowed of modernist paradigms.
