Descended from great artists, both from her Indonesian and Dutch ancestors, Anne van Borselen has studied at the Royal Academy of the Arts in the Hague and Rotterdam. Born in Surabaya in 1937, Anne's first exhibition was on the island of Ibiza in Spain where she lived for five years.
An energetic and spirited artists, Anne paints on canvas, rice paper, and panels using acrylics, oils, gauche or ink. Refusing to be bound by the limits of working in any one style or medium, Anne van Borselen's work has been imperfectly compared to the works of Degas in its beauty and Rembrandt in the intensity of emotion it conveys. Bold and provocative in her paintings, Anne still manages to retain humor and an easy going style that pervades both her personal style and her art.
Anne said: "I discover beauty in everyday things. There is no real separation between the observer and the observed. Dance movements, compositions with figures, I have to enter into a sort of trance that will give me the feeling that my work is being guided by a cosmic force. In the end, the work itself takes over and you don’t even know you are working."
Anne van Borselen's latest exhibition ”Beautiful People” opened in the East Lobby Lounge of the Conrad Bali Resort & Spa on April 1, 2006 where it is scheduled to be open to the public on a daily basis through September.
The Beautiful People exhibition by Anne can Borselen is a joint promotion between the Conrad Bali Resort & Spa and Jenggala Ceramics.
