Anne Kwasner is a multi-disciplinary artist working across the mediums of drawing and printmaking. She completed my Masters in Ceramics at the National Art School in Sydney, in 2019.
Anne has refocussed her drawing from paper, to upcycled plates, to three- dimensional ceramic works. Since 2006, she has exhibited consistently with a strong history of working with artist run initiatives, thriving in the independent ethos of these spaces. Her work touches on ideas of dislocation, diaspora, and the melancholy of displacement. A recurring theme is the experimentation of how ones’ personal objects and images can be highly emotive. She grapples with identity, family history and loss, exploring the potential of objects to act as repositories for both known and unknown pasts.
