Anne Forest, I am with name; Heden, The Hague

Two years ago Anne Forest (1983) had an exhibition in Heden about which i wrote that her work had “matured considerably,”  that her style was “immediately recognisable” but “also manoeuvrable.”

Well, in her present show at Heden one could say she is still manoeuvring at different levels.

In two paintings she seems to make more of a perspective space around her figures and there she enters uncertain terrain that seems to be alien to her icon-like style.

Are these the margins of her style?

That is all the more important as her best works create a space of their own around them by themselves.
