Little Dreamy Portraits
“My collages are the result of creativity in a “relaxed” way. I always make them playfully, without too much importance to the actual process.
Often it happens during long travels, when I need to keep myself busy. And then the game begins, I never know when the puzzle will come together. When it happens, I feel a genuine creative euphoria.
I always wanted art to be more joyous, creativity which brings a smile. So, my collages are often a joke, with an element of truth. All the characters – fictional… any resemblance to real people is purely coincidental.”
Anna Muller is a visual artist from Russia. She currently lives and works in Paris, where she is a still-life photographer and collage artist.
For several years she lived in Tokyo. Rich traditions of Japanese culture contributed to the development of her self-discipline, attention to detail and responsiveness.
In 2012 she arrived to Paris to study at the Speos Photographic Institute, where she found her big passion of playing with and photographing objects.
“I’m looking for different ways to express my ideas. For me it is important to feel not only with my heart, but also my hands. I have discovered that collage art and photography allows me to go beyond the actual forms. It epitomises my sense of humour and self-irony.”
