Magical Work from Ranna's Studio

Hovering in the picture plane, secret breaths of color whisper phantasms of figure and ground among fields of white, which itself plays with its own reality - is it white, is it grey, blue... something else?

Ranna's own words

"I love art making"


Ranna and contemporary art - (yes, the obligatory art-speak)

Ranna® is a contemporary artist who has been dedicated to her work since the 1970s.

These days, she divides her professional and private life almost equally between the U.S.A. and Australia, producing studio-based art work and large scale ex-stallation projects (installations outdoors). Click here for a summary of Ranna's art projects at both locations.

Ranna's art work defies convenient categorization and pushes contemporary art into new territory technically, conceptually, and visually. Ignoring trendy art world fashions and expectations, her creativity has led to ethereal cutting edge contemporary art that embraces the brush, the world around her, and contemporary industrial materials, all signature to her "Shimmer Art™ " method. Ranna has lived and worked in NSW Australia, Townsville and Brisbane Australia, Virginia USA, and Tokyo Japan. She has exhibited in contemporary art galleries and museums in Australia, Japan, Europe, and the U.S.A. and "has produced a prodigious and significant body of work" *
