Ana Michaelis constructs imaginary landscapes, uninhabited and misty. In ILLUSION, the natural scene is veiled behind layers of white paint, maintaining the mystery of the landscape. She is interested in evoking memories, those that we bring with us and those that our eyes show us. In ILLUSION, the viewer is surrounded by a large imaginary landscape that seems to disappear, bridging the gap between memories and imagination. It suggests a sense of elongated time and the quiet side of nature, inviting reflection and meditation on our perception of reality.
