Fleeting Moments III was developed for a three person exhibition – ‘[un] seen’- at Arthouse 1 Gallery in London 2019 with Hanna ten Doornkaat, Sinta Werner and myself as the participating artists.

“[un]seen gives us access to the fundamentals of perception and amplifies the power of our ability to not only make connections between ourselves, the artworks and the space in which they reside, but also to extrapolate connectivity to the world outside the gallery.”

Jillian Knipe – Catalogue Essay [un]seen , Arthouse 1 Gallery, London 2019

Annamarie Dzendrowskyj seeks to examine the indeterminate nature of ‘ways of seeing’ and ‘ ways of being’, that ambiguous ‘grey area’ between presence and absence by exploring fleeting moments of a world in constant flux. Moments in time that suggest a space, rather than define a space, one that exists between what is seen and unseen, a zone of indiscernablity.

Indiscernable zones and spaces have been at the heart of Annamarie’s life experiences which act as a catalyst for her work, following 12 years as a scuba diving instructor, bringing her empirical experience of life underwater to the surface. What is seen underwater is affected by interference – by water movement, light and weather conditions and in this sense, nothing appears clearly defined. This is reflected in paintings and photographs which present the emergence and dissolution of forms and settings in ethereal landscapes.

Employing a process of creation and erasure, concealing and revealing, evoking the sense of a netherworld conflating time, place, vision and memory. Exploring the tension between figuration and abstraction, inviting the viewer to question their perception of time, place and space.

Annamarie was born in London and originally trained as a classical ballet dancer followed by a career as a PADI Scuba Diving Instructor/Examiner. She holds a BA Hons Degree in Philosophy specialising in existentialism and aesthetics (Lancaster University, UK), BA in Fine Art and BA Honours Degree in Painting (National Art School, Sydney, Australia).

Selected Distinctions: Finalist for the Arte Laguna Prize both in 2019 – recipient of a Biafarin Honours Award and in 2016 – recipient of the Fallani Serigraphy Residency Award. In 2020 and in 2019, selected for a Finalist Award in the Circle Arts Foundation Artist of the Year. Shortlisted for the Lynn Painter Stainers Prize in 2016, 2013 an Gemini Prize 2014, 2015, 2016, awarded 2nd Place in 2015.

Annamarie’s work has been exhibited internationally including UK, Belgium, Germany, Italy, Austria, Egypt and Australia and her work is held in both public and private collections.

Born in London, Annamarie Dzendrowskyj originally trained as a classical ballet dancer before completing a degree in Philosophy at Lancaster University, followed by a career as a Scuba Diving Instructor and Examiner for PADI Asia Pacific. She studied Fine Art at the National Art School in Sydney, where she was awarded a BA Degree with Honours in Painting in 2011. She is currently based in London and travels when possible in search of new inspiration. Annamarie seeks to explore and paint that ambiguous ‘grey area’ between presence and absence in atmospheric and haunting landscapes. Her images evoke a kind of netherworld that conflates time, place vision, and memory. Life as a scuba diving instructor informs her ‘eye’ resulting in work that reflects the experience of underwater vision. Everything seen is affected by movement, light and weather conditions and in this sense, nothing appears clearly defined. The starting points for her are digital images shot through the window of a moving car or bus, often when misted with rain or condensation. Distancing and isolating herself through the device of the window glass or camera lens from physical immersion in a location. The images are translated into oil paintings, and explore the tension between figuration and abstraction and the way in which the viewer understands or perceives time and place. The portrayal of light and surface considerations are key to the sense of presence and absence in Annamarie’s subtle but complex works. Annamarie’s work has been displayed in solo and group exhibitions, received a number of art prizes and her work is held in both public and private collections.
