Biographical Info Annelies Kamran is a native of Brookhaven (where she still resides) who began making art several years ago with no formal training. Her primary media are watercolor and graphite on paper, and kinetic sculptures made of wire and glass where she can investigate the play of color and of light and shadow. She counts among her biggest influences the works of Winslow Homer, Aaron Douglas, and Alexander Calder. She likes to explore perseverative interests as well as global political themes in her work, the latter being in keeping with her profession of political scientist — her portrait of a Syrian refugee, “Aylan Kurdi,” won honorable mention at the South Bay Art Association’s 62nd Annual Members’ Memorial Exhibit.
