Artist's Statement

The idea of the city jungle reverberates in the paintings and installations of Ann Sophie Stærk. The artist’s pictorial universe is inspired by her adopted city New York and Copenhagen, her hometown. The frenzy of NY, its myriad of people and its irresistible vivacity is a contrast to the tranquil Danish city where nature and design play a part in both urban and home life.

Metropolis is the vibrant city: we are bombarded by its movements, facades, architecture and public spaces. Interiors function, in our passion for design and comfort, as a continuation of the city. However, the home sphere is also the city’s antithesis: an oasis needed to withdraw from the insistent buzz of urban surroundings.
