Anne- Sophie Sandorff is well known for her generously sized, colorful
and highly detailed paintings of fantasy characters and creatures.
Her subject style gives an other-worldly appearance.
Due to the intricate detail, her paintings take a long time to execute.
Her art influences are heavily influenced by Japanese Artists as Yoshitaka Amano and Utagawa Kuniyoshi ,but she also looks to modern Western Art and Artists as Gustav Klimt or Beksinky.
The symbiosis of colors and the playing of light is vitally important in
my philosophy. It’s my dream to capture the highest beauty possible in
my paintings. Like viewing something as simple as a leaf, under a
microscope, true beauty is seen to be very detailed and planned.
It is with this kind of intricacy that I want to paint.
