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


"Anne Torpe ponders daily rituals and feelings of remembrance. Perhaps most recognisable by her soft, elegant colour palette and androgynous figures. Torpe is not simply a painter of feminine beauty, but a master of structure and composition who constantly reconfigures her pictorial space to convey complex emotional states. Painted from photographs, found in vintage magazines or photo albums, Torpe’s paintings seem at first sight to be solely about the behaviour of the Women and the effects of colour and light in the scenes from what looks like intensely private spheres. To spend time in front of the paintings by Torpe, however, is to see them change. Figures and interiors begin to move seamlessly in and out of each other, as each painting seems to be a study in seeing and remembering" ...
