About Anya

SHE MAKES HER WORK ACCESSIBLE TO ALL WOMEN 

” 

Anya Naumovic is an interdisciplinary artist who works with print-based media, ceramics and text. Her work has evolved to take an introspective look at her sexual trauma and the female body, Naumovic's work has become a bank of evidence of her rape and abuse, where previously there was none. Allowing for an exploration into intangible feelings and translating them into a domestic object that is comprehensible. Furthermore, she has taken the private experience of abuse into the public domain.
 
By using printed, rather than handwritten word, she makes her work accessible to all women affected by sexual abuse and violence. Providing a platform for them to have the confidence to speak out and share their own experiences. 
 
The physical process of carving lino and hand printing each letter onto her work mirrors the aggression and violence of abuse. The use of bold capital letters further accentuates this idea. Naumovic’s work is confrontational, acknowledging that the text is printed with intention, such as on the front of t-shirts worn by the artist, forcing the viewer to engage with the person, not the statistic. Furthermore, throughout her sculptural and ceramic works, the politics of gender and the domestic space are explored; challenging the societal expectations and fears women face.
