Anna Glantz, Imagined Pregnancy, 2020


Varied in style, composition and execution, Anna Glantz’s paintings are linked by the way in which they blend autobiography and fiction. Domestic interiors, still lives, cats and the artist’s partner have all been topics in her recent solo exhibitions. In Imagined Pregnancy Glantz anchors a self-portrait within the history of painting, specifically a setting and style that speak of the Italian Renaissance. Imagining her own possible future pregnancy, the artist is incising a mark in time. The intense searching expression she wears as she gazes back at the viewer feels apt for a work that will shift in meaning and significance as the artist’s life unfurls.
