Anna Kenar’s work explores darker themes of the human condition. Kenar was born and raised in Poland where her views were colored by rich images of folklore, mysticism, and faith. Investigating themes of pain, power, control, conflict and alienation, Kenar’s work gravitates towards the cultural and historical fundamentals of her upbringing. In the tradition of the graphic arts, Kenar’s practice explores mark-making in a monochrome spectrum. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally. Kenar received her B.A in history from Benedictine University and M.F.A in printmaking from Northern Illinois University. She currently lives and works in Charlotte, NC.
