5 x 5 Decision 5

The artist selected by curator Sheila Elias is:

There is a subtlety to Anna Garner's work that has an emotional pull of beauty until you realize what the subject matter is. The tragic content in this body of work transforms the mind to be aware of all of the holocausts in the world. There is a stillness to the photographic imagery, and the subjects themselves. If feels as though it is an isolated moment in time. The railroad tracks
piece that shows the tracks disappearing into the horizon line has a tremendous mysterious quality about it. Her use of light and texture is quite arresting. I share Garner's religious views, and have studied the Holocaust in depth, so her series is quite meaningful to me.

Congratulations Anna!
