Art By Anne Siems

December 24, 2010

The darling and sweet Melissa from the Melissa Loves blog finds some of the best things — like German artist Anne Siems, who I’d not heard of before. Melissa is always spotlighting the rare and beautiful out there in blogland, her site is such a delight.

Art By Anne Siems

Anne Siems moved from Berlin to Seattle in 1991 after finishing her MFA at the Hochschule der Kunste in Berlin. About her work Anne says, “I continue with my interest 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. A lot of inspiration for these pieces stem from my ongoing love for the art of the European Masters, Early American Folk Art, as well as vintage and modern photography.”

So nice to know of Anne and her work.

    I love Melissa Loves, too, she always finds the sweetest things, artists, soft sculpture, etc. – love, love, love! I was not familiar with Anne Siems before, but her work looks magical – like a storybook come to life. Just lovely.

    I am truly in love with that latest image… it is maybe a bit to sweet for my taste but I could easily see it on my white wall in the bedroom.

    Anne is soooo very gifted and really kind via email. I first saw her work in person at Blackberry Farm and was floored. Now I dream of one of her lacy pieces!
