STATEMENT: Elin Anna seeks to challenge herself and the viewer with demanding questions loaded with humor. She wonders about the connection between art and its surroundings, process and purpose. Many of her works are experimental and have a feeling of spontaneity. This is best seen in her impulsive paintings and strange performances.
