Anna Glasbook has developed an innovative technique using colour, light and textiles in a strikingly distinctive way.
Her inspiration comes from photographic images of urban and rural environments, translating contours, textures and colours into three-dimensional designs. She enjoys playing with perspective and perception of space. Lines are used as markers of volume, resulting in structural drawings that give the impression of solidity and delicacy simultaneously.
Anna is the daughter of a Danish weaver. She grew up surrounded by Scandinavian design, shelves of coloured yarns and the language of textiles. She trained and worked as a speech therapist before discovering her passion and studying textiles at Bath Spa University.
Anna says: “I began this series of work towards the end of winter with a longing for the particular light that exists in spring; I wanted to get out and photograph that light, looking at the vitality, the colours and the patterns it creates. Light is so important to mood.”
