Anne Frank - Head as a Tunnel by Iris A Berger
With this she is keen not only to communicate her own feelings, but to express the experiences of others, particularly in difficult times.
She uses memory, anticipation, despair, fear and hope as key themes and all of these make her paintings compelling.
Iris is also interested in the history of art and pushing boundaries of style. One of her series (called The Apples) shows fruit changing through time in a challenging style.
