Meet the on-line Artist // Anja Musura
Anja Musura is a Toronto-based, multi-media artist making experimental, conceptual, minimal art about light, energy and sound. A graduate of OCAD University, her current project focuses on the unseen within the seen – the energy that objects, light, and sound retain and transmit.
Her body of work offers themes of escapism and flux, an invitation to the viewer into the dreamscape, to escape in and outside of themselves. Her current work is explored via photography, 3D objects and materials, painting, and digital media. She uses a minimal color palette with a focus on space, shape, and texture.
Who are you?
I’m Anja Musura and I’m based in Toronto, ON. I graduated from OCAD University. I like spontaneity and adventure, experimental processes and the unexpected. I like to create, travel, explore and connect with people.
How would you describe your artistic practice?
I’m a multimedia artist making experimental, conceptual, minimal art about light, energy and sound. My current projects include a focus on digital art, photography, 2D and 3D works.
What is your methodology or process for creating a new project?
I create intuitively – I experiment with concepts, processes and mediums. I listen to music and act as a conduit to place the visuals onto the page. To create, I enter a state of flow to act as a vessel for the energy to escape into a visual format and then refine it. I begin with an idea and it evolves as it exists. As the object enters into existence, it continues to evolve.
What have you decided to focus on in your current project at GlogauAIR? What does this project mean to you?
My project Digital for GlogauAIR is an exploration of sound to visual. A study on synesthetic process – the sound enters and exits onto the page – I am the conduit to place it. It is a set of minimal, black and white digital images that reflect sound to visual in a minimalist, experimental format. It invites the viewer into an immersive experience to interact, absorb, and be absorbed by the pieces. It intends to communicate the unseen energy of sound to visual, it is an exploration of existential processes – an invitation into the energy.
