Anne Korff’s paintings are based on the observations that she made of Christian and Islamic Art and Architecture whilst travelling in the Mediterranean countries and Turkey. Her most recent work is influenced by what she saw when working with refugees on the Greek island of Chios. These paintings are about displacement, loss, separation and trauma which reflect the experiences that the refugees have when leaving their homeland and making the dangerous crossing between Turkey and Greece.
