The following powerful paintings are available in prints on canvas from Ana Maria Gower. Ana Maria is a Serbian-British mixed media artist focusing on the themes of memories, life path, and experiences of war. The origin of her artistic interests goes back to her own experience of surviving the NATO bombings of Yugoslavia and its capital – Belgrade. Being a 10-year old in a war zone, she witnessed the destruction caused by NATO involvement both during the conflict and for years after. Currently, Ana Maria’s work tries to depict an encounter with the forces of life, interpret it from the expressionist perspective, and present a distilled meaning. A graduate of Central Saint-Martins (London, UK), she has participated in numerous exhibitions in the UK, Serbia, and the United States. She currently lives and works in the San Francisco Bay Area. Ana Maria discusses her work in this video.

All I want is freedom
Print on canvas of acrylics on canvas,  61 cm x 76 cm
This is my grandmother today, with her unremarkable yet powerful stare that makes you wonder about her life story. The story can be seen through her sad eyes. She and her family were captured during the Second World War by the Nazis and taken to the concentration camp for 5 years. My grandma told me that every night as a child she would look through the metal bars and wish she could become a bird and fly to freedom.

Colors of War
Print on canvas of acrylics, inks, plaster, various mediums on canvas, 76 cm x 61 cm
One war-related impression that stuck with me forever was the experience of colors of the burning city. Yet it was more than coloristic change: I wanted to depict a shift from the ordinary into the new, never-seen-before territory. The well-understood city was experienced in an entirely different way.

Family Tree
Print on canvas of acrylics, photography, stamps, glue on cardboard, 61 cm x 61 cm
This is one of the most personal works for me. It consists of bits and pieces that I managed to save from my childhood. Here, tree branches depict time in a rather literal way. They hold images of the past: my grandmother, myself as a kid, stamps from a country that does not exist anymore.

Merciful angels
Print on canvas of acrylics, photography, inks, mediums on canvas, 76 cm x 55 cm
The painting is dedicated to the memory of children who died during the NATO bombing raids of Serbia in 1999. “Merciful Angel” was an incorrect translation of the NATO’s code name for 1999 bombings (in English it was called a “Noble Anvil”).

Collage art by Samira Schäfer: Orient meets Occident. Sometimes sarcastic, almost cynical, but always provocative, Samira Schäfer refers to reality, cruelty, violence, the abundance of the consumer world – the screaming injustices – but always her humor shines through, mixed with sarcasm, and sometimes it is simply denouncing. She claims the right to judge. Her works creates tension, it provokes and composes. Samira Schäfer grew up in Damascus, Syria, went to a French-language school there and then studied French literature. Since she was only briefly enrolled in the Damascus Academy of Arts, she describes herself as an autodidact. In her art, as well as later in her name, the centuries-long tensions between the Orient and the Occident are present. Unfortunately, the timeliness of this dichotomy is currently screaming. Samira Schäfer came to Berlin in 1969 and resumed her artistic work 20 years later. She has exhibited her art in Berlin, Paris, and New York, among other locations.
