In 2012, the world is facing the rise of social media and internet communication, a relatively new phenomenon for our time. Anna Dart, through her art, highlights the impact of this digital revolution on our emotions and relationships. With the title "Watercolours we are", she explores the complexities of the human condition in the 21st century, a time where people are becoming increasingly detached from one another. Her works feature a range of emotions, from seduction to melancholy, from sensuality to loneliness, and from turbulence to stillness.


The title "Watercolours we are" references the fluid and delicate nature of watercolors, as well as the complexity and emotional depth that can be captured in the medium. The artist is drawing a parallel between the way watercolors can be used to express the nuanced emotions and experiences of the human condition and the inherent fluidity and vulnerability of being human. The title also reflects the idea that humans, like watercolors, are complex, ever-changing, and capable of blending and merging in new and unexpected ways. 


Anna's first solo show is a defining moment in her career as an artist. Hosted by aDa Art Gallery from 19 to 30 September, 2012, the show brings together a multidisciplinary performance featuring a dancer, musician, poet, pianist, and even a cocktail master, making it a truly immersive experience for the audience. 

With over 60 artworks displayed on two floors, the show is a resounding success, with one painting sold and several larger galleries showing interest in Anna's work. The show marks the debut of some of her most iconic watercolours, including "Fu Mar", "Perfect chaos", "Absorbing", and "One day after rain".


The inaugural vernissage takes place on September 19, 2012 at 19:30 and features the performance of the dancer Moises Rojo Ortega, the guitarist Aleix Bove, the poet Julio Higueras, and pianist Jordi Ar Quaxime. In collaboration with Port de DRAGONS Gin-Tonics.
