Made of acrylic paint, ink, wax, metal on canvas or paper, the abstract works of Anne Herzog, reflect the environment in which they were made: white shades like snow, silver like the sky, black as volcanic rocks, red like lava, a context found in Iceland in the Snaefellsnes she likes.

An allegorical quest for a portal to the underworld, or the gateway to a hidden realm, the Snæfellsjökull, evoked by Jules Vernes in his "Journey to the Center of the Earth", is a volcano that preoccupies her.

Frenchwoman living in New York before moving to Iceland in 2010, Anne Herzog is a graduate of Fine Arts from Nantes and has a master's degree from the University Pantheon Sorbonne.

She sought on the volcanoes of the Caribbean, the Indian Ocean and Northern Europe to nourish a passion that she translates through documentaries and canvases with Stendhalian tones ... she tracks on the ground a "direct contact with another world ".
