Opheim- Anne, Oil on Canvas, 81.3×81.3cm( 32x32 in.), 2019

This is “Anne”, one of the most iconic paintings at 2019 Peter Opheim’s solo exhibition in Taiwan.

There are many different colors. Unlike other works, this painting has many flowers.

Is the character in the painting a teenage girl or an older person? Opheim did not explicitly depict the age, but let the viewers create their stories.

Some people like the eyes painted by Opheim, which have a lot of unpredictability and a thoughtful expression.

The graphic painting presents a considerable three-dimensional effect.

“Peter Opheim hopes us to jump out of the frame and not rely on the answers given by others, but to get used to imagining on our own. Therefore, is it human, animal or a kind of elf? We can find our own conclusions.”
