a place where art meets literature in a way unseen before

Author

Anna H. Lucy

Anna is a published author, poet and philosopher of life. As a 'restless hunter of nuances in things' she rejects standard answers and conventional wisdom and obvious appearances. Instead she tries to ask the right questions that usually are the beginning of a fascinating journey. Born in Central Europe, Poland in 1985, from her early years Anna has been extremely passionate about the different kinds of Art, Artists, their Paintings and Photography. Art historians do art, study it and try to understand what artists are expressing in their work and and what the viewers perceive in it. 'Art Detectives' go a step further and look beyond the surfaces' and unfold the things that are not obvious at the first glance. With texts filled with feeling, passion and warmth Anna welcomes the readers in the fascinating world of art to share an evocative journey throughout the 'old' and 'contemporary' art - a literary experience to remember.
