    anouk mercier

    illustration

    Anouk’s drawings rely on the nostalgia of Romanticism, mythology and storytelling to depict melancholic worlds, undefined by time, space or location. Combining fragments from 17th and 18th Century landscape etchings, references to vintage postcards as well as her own mark making, her work confuses the boundaries of what is ‘real’, taking on a dream‐like quality. Celebrating the power of imagination to escape the quotidian and the mundane, Anouk’s drawings present a continuous search for escapism through the portrayal of a fragmented, yet beautiful ideal, whilst also exploring the mysterious, the abysmal and the uncanny that often lurks behind idylls.

    Anouk was born in Paris and now lives and works in Bristol.
