Anna Bellinger. UK. 1969.
I was born and brought up in the countryside of southeast England.
I completed a degree in Printed Textile Design at WSCAD a long time ago.
Both of these things inform my current practice.
 
I am interested in the human relationship with nature, in the nature of being human, and the disconnect and the stories that lie within. I wonder a lot. I enjoy colour and ideas. I´m also attracted to pattern.  I make and paint and photograph and also like to write stuff occasionally. I enjoy humour, funny is important to me, but sometimes it comes from a dark place.
I have previously worked with found objects, photography, and installation to present sideways, tongue-in-cheek images of an ugly human legacy in ´Underfoot´ and ´Anthropocene´, but my current obsession is with the ´Umbrella Pine´ and its almost human, limb-like forms - using acrylics and charcoal to explore their power and steady presence as a symbol of a natural world we seem compelled to control, curtail and ultimately destroy.
