Anna Geerdes: As Far As The Eye Can See

Anna’s degree show stood out for us for its skill in painting and intellectual, imaginative thought provoking content. Her life experiences coming from Holland to Scotland and the environment of Orkney, have shaped and informed Anna’s thinking together with the awareness and sensitivity of world events and its effects on humanity and our global environment. These paintings are intriguingly haunting and have a compelling nature to them. Born in 1960 in a small town in the Netherlands, called Katwijk aan Zee, Anna moved to Orkney where she lived for fifteen years before studying at Grays’ School of Art in Aberdeen. She graduated with First Class Honours in Painting and has since achieved various awards including the RSA Landscape Award, David & June Gordon Memorial Award and the Purchase Award by RGU Arts and Heritage.
