Visit Anna Tsantir’s website
While scanning the interent for interesting prints, the work by Anna Tsantir stands out among the crowd. Her pieces present an interesting juxtaposition of mechanical and natural elements. In one series titled “Whether Conditions” trees are shown with somewhat organic-looking masses of pink geometric shapes swirling and intertwining about the branches. What is really eye-catching about these pieces is the effective use of subtlety. The images are on a brown grocery sack-looking type of paper with the trees being only countour outlines and the geometric masses adding a light complementary splash of color to the piece.
She explores the same theme in different variations, such as a geometric nest holding solid red eggs and what look like white fuzzy dandelions being supported by thin mechanical straw necks. She also has a few works that appear to be symbols for different things that she has experimented with incorporating into a few small pieces. To see how these endeavors develop, follow her progress on her website.
