Patina Maldives are thrilled to have Ana Pušica for its Art Residency in the Fari Art Atelier program.

24 January to 20 February 2024

Ana Pušica Kramer, an internationally acclaimed contemporary artist, paints large-format masterpieces at the crossroads of abstraction and figuration. Exhibiting globally from New York to Beijing, her art is a physical, intuitive act rooted in movement. Her paintings, described as a "beautiful fluorescent thunderstorm," explore light and color, capturing the energy of life. Ana employs diverse techniques and surfaces, creating captivating layers through repeated motifs and dynamic gestures. Her work, oscillating between non-abstract and loosely figurative, invites associations such as red-hot magma or vibrant pinks and oranges, embodying an 'intense lightness' with multiple layers of potential meaning. Discover Ana's mesmerizing exploration of poetry, memory, and the vibrant interplay of color in her captivating artworks.

Ana’s month long residency will give guest the opportunity to see her in action as well as get the opportunity to create art alongside her.
