?... born in 1951 in Denmark, she lives and works in France and India. Allegory The works of Anne Vilsbøll are filled with emotional intensity. The canvas seems eroded, smoothed by the weather, weather that deepens a river bed or exposes a stone, revealing its strata. ”At the Source“ and ”The River taught Me to Listen“ are just some of the titles describing these allegories. They are executed in colours ranging from blue to the deepest black or blazing red, setting the canvas alight. There is no false modesty or sentimentality. There is the artist, at times caressing the canvas, manhandling it at others, emulating the effects of existence on man. These works are extraordinary in their humanity.
