GALLERY5X7 welcomes Annemarie Borg – Antara to our community of artists and collectors! We are excited to feature a number of Annemarie’s beautiful handcrafted Argyrotypes, cyanotypes and lumen prints for purchase. These beautiful alternative process prints are wonderful additions to our gallery portfolio.
What Annemarie Borg – Antara demonstrates is her intense curiosity in attempting to push through the boundaries of her creative expression. She is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts and an ocean preservation speaker as well as a performance coach. She entered the world of visual art as a professional musician, classically trained singer, and ambient music composer with five album releases.
For Borg-Antara visual art is a natural extension of her passion for music and for the environment, she embraces her work from live performances and street photography to a black and white macro photography series entitled “The Intimate Language of Flowers.” She approaches alternative photographic processes in the same way she approaches music and all her professional commitments, expressing her deep passion for Nature. Through trial and error she finds her own way into these processes, from cyanotype to lumen on various supporting materials, and a personal combination of cyano-lumen process, then to Argyrotypes (Mike Ware process). She continues to experiment further with an extension of cyanotype that she calls Au Doigté, introducing ink and different substrates into the process. She firmly believes that creativity and imagination are the main tools for change, and that to be static is not an option.
Annemarie lives in Paris and in London.
