of subtle emotionality, highlighting the beauty and strength of vulnerability and
human emotions. Which often displays a mix of distorted abstract, figurative
elements blending in with the subject matter creating dreamlike surreal pieces


As an artist, Pollyanna aims to show the beauty and the force hidden behind human
emotions and fragility through the series of works she created.
Through her works that is created during the pandemic, She aims to reflect the
intimate and entrenched struggles in our head, while showing the importance of
being able to process and let go. Also seeking to highlight that the beautiful and
ugly emotions that we feel is normal. And that there’s no harm in showing it. Fiercely
showing outside who we are, because what makes us beautifully human.
She believes that art can catalyze discussions around untouchable topics. And Art’s
capacity to transform, heal and strengthen. By this, she channels her own struggles
into her work to create art people can relate to on an emotional level. Focusing on
self acceptance, and shedding light on mental health. Hoping to communicate this
to people, she seeks to highlight how it is pertinent that we acknowledge our inner
feelings as human beings.
