Anico Mostert’s most recent work speaks to the quiet moments of the everyday. She allows her practice to be intuitive and exist as a process of learning and discovery, creating the space for vivid colours and coltish figures to find their place in paintings and prints. Anico uses reference images from social media to imagine still lifes of ordinary scenes, observing the elements of the medium for the artwork to determine itself. Each piece’s name occurs as Anico imagines what it would say if it could speak.
