“The story unfolds around past family events in the heat of August.

They, who are now already dead, prepare to enjoy their life there...

And the faces oppositely have preserved all of it in their wrinkles, between life and death, hanging in the memories of August, a long way back,”

Anna Heinrihsone, 2015

Anna Heinrihsone’s solo exhibition AUGUST with 40 miniature paintings continues two previously explored themes by the paintress – old wrinkles and bushes. In this exhibition they can be seen together.
