In the series 'Atlantis' Petri does not present the real world as you see it when you travel, but the inner world. To see this world you don't have to travel far away but just close your eyes and surrender to your own imagination. That is the beauty of being an artist; that you can create your own fantasy world and imagine yourself at the bottom of the sea while working in your studio.

It is an illusion; a tranquil artificial world in which you can lose yourself for a moment and forget the hustle of everyday life.

To be sources of inspiration: 17th century engravings in the atmosphere of Piranesi, natural science, literature and first and foremost the romantic longing for a world that is not there but that you can only dream of.

In designing the etchings, Petri uses the collage technique, creating complex and often surprising compositions. Then the drawing is drawn on one etching plate and bitten in stages. The etchings are multi-color prints. By always 'painting' a colour on the plate and then printing it 'wet in wet', an effect of depth is created.

  • Annemarie Petri (The Hague, 1965) is a versatile artist. She makes paintings, sculptures and etchings/engravings.
  • Her great technical capacity is always at the service of evoking a very own, fairytale-like and melancholic world. Her range in this is large, from bizarre to humorous, from alienating to recognizable.
  • The great concentration and love with which she carries out her meticulous performances is striking.
  • Annemarie was educated at the Free Academy in The Hague (1984-1989) and has since built up an excellent reputation, first as a graphic artist, later as a painter and sculptor.
  • She has been a teacher of drawing, painting and etching for more than 20 years. Her work is shown at home and abroad in various museums, galleries and at fairs.
  • Petri's Etchings distinguish themselves with surprising compositions based on 17th century engravings in the atmosphere of Piranesi, natural science, literature and in the first place the romantic longing for a world that is not there but that you can only dream of.
