Anastasia Pather is a finger painter, quiet performer and female concerned with surface and the duality of objects. Her work explores the architecture of memory and the politics of colour. Although she understands her process as an involuntary reaction to a surface she cannot shut out her thoughts about identity, exoticism, eroticism and power. Her use of gold leaf and glue allows her to paint time and that idea quite intrigues her.
Anastasia Pather is a practicing, fine artist receiving her B.F.A from the University of the Witwatersrand in 2010. Pather was a semi-finalist for SA Taxi Foundation Art Award in 2015 and has exhibited in numerous group exhibitions and fairs for Kalashnikov Gallery, Lizamore and Associates Gallery and No End Contemporary Gallery. Pather exhibited a solo show at 99 Loop Gallery in 2016.
