“The Anne Lise
Kaaby’s pictorial space “ by Manuela Vannozzi
Anne Lise Kaaby,
artist, has artistic caliber and personal dimension that have a recognizable
profile in the current art scene. She expresses a lifestyle and stylistics
culture, which is based on the internalization dimension of aesthetics and
ethics, trespassing in those horizons of independent value.
The themes of the
paintings possess characters and subjects related to the dynamics of motion and
Her creations are as
a voluntary act of liberation from anything that exceed the strength of the
material, pure and simple, culminating in a will to live where the bodies in
action express all their energy.
Anne Lise Kaaby is
a figurative abstractionist painter. She demonstrates excellent mastery in the
use of brushes to paint the human figures, to smooth faces, to create magnetic and
magic gazes as well as to show abstract vibrant forms of life. Her style doesn’t identify in the bottleneck
of recognition at all costs.
In portraits or in
the abstract or in the pictorial journey of her artistic life, she seeks the
limits, she reaches new horizons using colors, brushes or spatulas. In
portraits shines the mysterious trait that gives life to a two-dimensional
face, breaking decidedly from her counterparts.
The Anne Lise Kaaby’s
abstractionist painting has something different from the usual stereotypes, it
goes beyond the concepts and ruminations asphyxiated hovering in a new space,
She is a painter
who works with great creative force, which pushes her towards the only reason
for living that binds to the art world with great pride and visual purity.
The basic elements
of the language of painting by the Norwegian artist, recognize through the
color in a space defined by a concrete existence materialized from the form.

ensemble that plays songs that really caught glimpses into some of the salient
signs, interior and exterior, in the absence of her past and the perceptiveness
of her emotions imprinted on canvas .
strength of chromatic tones used, it appears that the desire to express
themselves through a metaphorical synthesis aimed to achieve cultural
reverberations that occur as a subsoil of symbolic "forms".
The images she
conceived, drawn as a veritable "spiritual vibrations" are the result
of a closed series of visions that explore her imaginative psyche on which rest
the campite many areas of pure color.
How pure bodies
suspended in space, the works of Anne Lise Kaaby, represent an interior that must
be analyzed and interpreted. They are what they are and also what they mean
are: there is a sense and a meaning, a soul, which physically manifest
something that is imprinted on the canvas.
fragmentary and circumscribed figures and the characteristics of their boundary
environmental referred to by the artist, are the highest expression of a
semiotic mechanism that sets in motion the meaning of every gesture of an act
which aims to abstract painting.
The analogy or
metaphor of the "pictorial space" and the "physical space",
takes an important factor of communication, where the relationship
"physics" of an influence unreal color is given by the symbolic
function which then takes through the materialization of the form .
For Anne Lise Kaaby
the "inside" of the magmatic material is a spiritual thing where the
images that are generated will receive a germination interior.
The spirit is pure
profile a wealth intimate and soul, however, is one that tends to desire to
love, to hate, to dream and imagine. These two powers between soul and spirit
if they join together collide in this painting.
All works are
characterized by bold and bright colors, imposing its symbols of an ideal
geometry in the form of multiple fragments, Anne Lise Kaaby try to insert in
the ideal world of geometric art a trace of the social landscape contextualized
in social work.
Her work can often
be reconnected to the first phase of the current cubist which then flows into
her line of reworking of social criticism and reflection on the condition of
the contradictions of contemporary man.
In Cubism the
subject is broken up, analyzed, and reassembled in an abstract form. The artist
tends to portray the subject in a more varied, portraying it from different
points of view. The background and perspective planes interpenetrate, creating
an ambiguous space characteristic of Cubism (the most influential artists of
this movement were Pablo Picasso, Fernand Léger, Georges Braque and Juan Gris).
Anne Lise Kaaby always
tends to not be the lyrical dimension, inner, spiritual, but a concrete
reality, and this is clear from the choice of her subjects.
representations of reality seem partial and against, develop a painting
technique that marks the dissolution of the traditional approach, namely the so
called Renaissance. Starting therefore from meditation on her work, the work
stylistically point to a reorganization of the pictorial space, enhances the
synthesis of plastic forms and while developing a reading of reality in volumetric
key, thus multiplying the points of view according to which the subject is
To achieve this
goal Anne Lise Kaaby break the painted surface into pieces, small surfaces that
record each a different point of view, so that the viewer looking at the
picture can make a sort of virtual tour 360 degrees in space and time.

of the image in its subject is well summarized in the expectations of mass
culture. They communicate a narrative content, a factual history that belonged
to the global culture of the contemporary world.

out in her canvases the news of communication that stands out as a prevailing

who, instead, have to strike and affect the reader.
