Behind La Poire is Anine Cecilie Iversen, who is an artist based in Copenhagen. She started painting very early when her dad, an art teacher, introduced her to drawing and painting with watercolours. Being fascinated by the perishable and ever changing, her work is a study in contrasting vibrant colours, bold silhouettes, femininity and organic shapes. She takes inspiration from modern art, fashion, botanics, and finding nuances in aspects of colours, lights, inner feelings and thoughts. Her paintings of women seek to explore both the vulnerability and grace of the modern, fashionable, human being.
