Anna Bjerger

Born in 1973 - Sweden


Anna Bjerger was born in Sweden in 1973. She lives and works in Småland, Sweden. She studied Fine Art (BA) at the Central St. Martins School of Art and Design, London and got her MA in painting from the Royal College of Art, London, in 2001.

The point of departure in Bjerger’s paintings is found, anonymous photographs. The people who populate her images share something indefinable.

Perhaps the fact that they were once depicted by a camera, that their sole purpose is to fill up a pictorial space, to match a surrounding. Maybe the fact that they are nothing in themselves, but always seem to be aware of the camera. In the paintings there is an intimate relationship between content and surface.

Between heavily painted eyelashes and raven-black oil paint, between trickles of turpentine and tears of despair. Someone has chosen an unexpected, photogenic shade of lipstick. And an ostentatious colour of dress becomes a revelation of something.

Sunshine as white gold in the air in a room. A natural scenery in the manner of an early tourist leaflet. Moonlight in greenery which, as a result of its intense greenness, becomes the highlight of the evening and the party. Movement. Love.
