Anne Brenner is a Paris-based artist.
Though educated in France, she was born in Canada, where she spent her early childhood. The experiences of the natural wide open spaces of Canada and the classical painting of European culture became profound influences in her art practice that reflects a realistic and poetic approach of ecological issues.
After graduating from the École des Beaux Arts in Paris and from Fine Arts University Paris 1 Pantheon-Sorbonne, she was awarded the Villa Medicis Hors-les-Murs Grant. This grant has allowed her to work one year and a half in Africa where she undertook a project about animal tracks. This series eventually led to the work she is doing today.
Anne has exhibited in several venues including the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris. Solo exhibitions include City of Sciences and Art, La Villette, Paris and Museum of Natural History, Grenoble.
She has exhibited at The Month of Photography 2019, Denver, CO, at Photo London 2019, at The Center of Contemporary Art Meymac, France, 2019, and at The Summer Exhibition 2019, Royal Academy, London.
Her latest solo show was at Galerie d'art du Parc, Art Center, Trois-Rivières, QC, Canada in 2019.
Current exhibitions are at Artothèque de Draguignan, France from December 2020 to July 2021
and at Abbaye de l'Escaladieu, France from July to December 2021.
