The painterly work of Anja Mamero finds the reference to the theme “No time for the future” from the time in which these new pictures were created. In this period after her Master’s examination, a time when there was no time for reflection. A new studio had to be found and occupied. This new space gave the artist the freedom to carry on the momentum of the labour-intensive time of the Master’s degree: in keeping with the theme “No time for the future”: simply work, work and work. All the pent-up energies and new approaches for the new paintings had to be implemented. The framework was set, moreover the outside world was in Corona lockdown and public life was completely thwarted. No time for culture, no time for exhibitions, the future will only come back after “Corona”.
