German artist Anne Siems is interested in the human figure and the attributes that surround it. These attributes reflect something about the being without giving a specific narrative. “Ideas about life and death, sensuality, sexuality, nature, experiences in the realm of dreams, psyche and spirit are my ongoing topic”. Anne Siems is a permanent participant of solo (more than 80) and various group exhibitions, mostly in the United States and Germany.

“All that I see, hear, touch, experience and dream moves into me and finds its way into my artwork. I love faces, bodies, gardens, wide open stretches of land with small forests and fields, old things that have had a life of their own, stories and all the realms in between. What I paint comes from an intuitive, visceral place. Elements found in my work through the years are there because they feel right; they have no specific symbolism. What you see is an open ended narrative, one that I invite you to enter into and complete or continue.”
