The underpinning to Anne Marie Djurfors' work is constructivist thinking - a dialogue between shapes/forms changing and displacing/shifting in their connection and unity that provides the picture dynamic rhythm. She works with counterpoints, juxtaposing the architectural with the organic, providing the eternal dialogue between forms. Body becomes geometry or vice versa in constant changeable and moving environment. This is the power, tension and life force behind her work. Stig Johansson, Svenska Dagbladet, Sweden, as a description of her way of painting.

Djurfors works in oil, watercolors and collage. Some of her paintings are done on aluminum, letting sliver of silver shine through. And among the angular figures there are still some landscapes.
Some of her paintings refer to 9/11, with red lines symbolizing the bloodline that connects all of us, and a red ball balancing ominously from high above.
