Anne Fellner is a Swiss/U.S. artist based in Berlin and Zurich. Her genre-bending paintings navigate a broad field of styles and materials: from figuration to abstraction, from hard-boiled to hypnotic, from cinematic to plein-air. Drawing on a variety of techniques, the artist projects her signs and figures onto colourful, synthetic fabrics, allowing the textile’s physical properties to set the tone.
