About Ana Hercigonja Gutschy

I was born and live in Zagreb, Croatia, and been interested in art since childhood. After I graduated from School for Applied Arts and Design, studying Art History made a deep impact on my work and more often I began to have a more conceptual approach. Based on the concept I choose media type and how to express it, however never losing interest in aesthetics.
I love to experiment and explore the world, the art, and myself. For me making art is like never-ending play and way to express thoughts and emotions, conscious and subconscious.
Themes in my works are often around philosophy, relationships, humor, contradictions, and values in society and art itself. I think a lot, feel a lot, and more often I try to escape overplanning in making art and let the process, in which I am not in total control, take over.
I work in various art mediums and techniques like painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, art installation, and mixed media.
