Born in Leningrad, USSR in 1981 adn currently living in Moscow, Anna Zholud is both a sculptor and painter. She transforms imagery from her paintings into metal rod sculptures. Zholud’s work reflects upon constructive drawing and introduces illusion into real space. The use of white in her rod sculptures is important for the Zholud, using the stark colour to deprive many of her sculptural subjects of their physical shape and volume. By manipulating colour, Zholud creates the illusion of work suspended in the air, lending her work a surreal, abstracted quality.
