Earlier this year The Orms Cape Town School of Photography hosted the first collaborative art exhibition between Swedish photographer and artist, Linnea Frank and Ukranian artist and model, Ana Kuni.
Linnea Frank is a Swedish-born artist currently living and working in Cape Town. Frank has travelled extensively throughout the world with her work; she has been involved with various exhibitions and collaborative projects, such as Jack Daniels, charity organisations Project Playground (SA) and The Hunger Projects (Sweden).
Frank enjoys printing on experimental substrates like metal, she believes her artwork printed on this medium creates visual depth and layering, which make her subjects look almost alive, giving her works an intense and unique feel.
Ukrainian-born artist, Ana Kuni, is currently living and working in Cape Town. Her work has been featured in fashion magazines such as GQ, Volt (UK) and Elle (SA).
Kuni’s art is a personal study of a modern human being and their existence and relationship with the natural world. Her work also touches on the exploration of the power emitted from female energy. She works mainly with watercolour, or uses other methods to mimic the same effects.
Though the works of Frank and Kuni differ greatly in aesthetics, the works curated for the event flowed seamlessly and complimented each other’s work well.
All the works were printed and framed by Orms Print Room and Framing.
