The QSPA Inspirational Award 2020 is being presented to the Swedish artist Anna Pajak (b. 1992) on the 14th Janaury 2021 .
Anna Pajak intermittently uses printmaking techniques, painting and text to inform her practice, drawing on the modernist esoteric movement to connect to a feminist take on image making and text production.
The jury is impressed by the artist’s spatial and geometrical explorations, the examination of surface, patterns, and depths. The way in which the formal language in her printmaking and painting interconnect, mutually informing one another. Colour and symbols, perspectives and imagery merge into almost futuristic entities where the abstract meets the figurative, and where the feminist spiritualist approach is re-forged into a contemporary language.
Queen Sonja Art Foundation congratulates Anna Pajak on QSPA Inspirational Award of 2020.
