by Lorser Feitelson , Artprofessor Art Center College of Design, Chair of Fine Art Dept, Los Angeles

Annelise Jarvis Hansen´s art is deeply rooted in Nordic metaphysical values.
"Inner vision", she informs us, is the source of her subjectivity.
Her creativity is compatibly assisted by her scholarship in historic and
avant-garde art concepts of both "formalism" and "beyond formalism".

Annelise is especially involved in the very interesting and complex problems
of attaining a condition of "coexistence" of apparently antagonistic forces
of harmony and discord within the framework of a single canvas; her
Ingeniously structured dualistic tension" becomes a new kind of aesthetic

Her introspective world is represented pluralistically: at times through
objective reality, at times through symbolic abstractions, which evoke poetic,
Enigmatic states of mind and existential equivalent. Annelise´s art excellently
Represents the very interesting contemporary tendency towards creating an
ambiguous art that is simultaneously ideational and sensate.


Art Review by Sys Hartman, Chief Editor, Weilbach Danish Art Encyclopedia
Annelise Jarvis Hansen’s art can be divided in two categories: works with the nude figure
on abstract background and works of pure abstract character. Common for both is the interest
for the line and curve and elements of action versus contra-action. There is a constant play
between the opposites - energies which flow between life and death, positive and negative –
with the intention to reach a balance point.

Annnelise´s nude figurative work, is composed naturalistic and in an abstract atmosphere of
waving curves, rhythm and lines. She focuses on the human mind, emotions and soul, which
mirrors in the abstract forms and which are brought in a timeless world.

Annelise strive to obtain that mentality, emotionality, sexuality and spirituality coexist in a
harmonious whole of self-consciousness, cleaned from social, political, cultural and religious ties.
Yin and Yang plays a role for her, as well as compositions forms from Botticelli, Michelangelo and Rembrandt.

Annelise´s pure abstract artwork is influenced by Lorser Feitelson´s "curvilinear hardedge abstraction"
with their effort to obtain an interaction between space and the concrete forms.
