Anna Di Mezza
Anna Di Mezza is a painter from New South Wales, Australia. She has a background in the study of graphic design and has also worked in the television animation industry as an inbetweener for Walt Disney.
Her current body of work is Surrealistic in nature. They are collage-like arrangements of chance encounters, old Hollywood lovers and anachronistic retellings of history. Her work displaces characters from their homes in vintage photographs, jettisoning them into cold-washed, mountainous landscapes or setting them in front of fresh hewn crystals, displacing them into Alice in Wonderland irregular proportions.
Her work is greatly influenced by the filmmaker David Lynch, whose films are like a journey to a parallel universe, which is a theme she aims for in her own work. The aim of the paintings is open to interpretation, as they seem pointedly unresolved.
