Anne Storno is a printmaker and mixed media artist based in London. She relies on photography, drawing, paint and collage to explore the world around her.
In her artworks, images are combined, removed from their original narrative context and reconfigured into a new scenario.
Some of her works are based on collages, transformed into a hand made screen print. She appreciates the messiness of sticky glue, soggy paper and the unpredictable nature of the final product. She is interested in working on the boundaries between collage and technology.
Her visual language embraces the brightness of Pop art. She likes the screen printing media because it is no longer confined to a simple impression on paper : it offers artists a way to experiment and fail, to test colour relationships and play with ideas.
Often appropriating visual themes and incorporating these as printed motifs, she adopts a playful approach in her practice.
Inspiration is found in her surroundings: colours, lines, shapes and patterns that can be found in cities, design and fashion and try to find humour in day to day life. She is inspired also by pets and their special place in our family life.
