Anna Camner's earlier work was focused on dark Vanitas themes; the paintings used to burst with foliage, flowers, insects, spider webs, snails and rodents, all in various stages of decay. The new body of work from 2015-2016 marks a clear departure from that. Conceptually, the artist still moves in the dark borderland between life and death, but her subjects, always painted against a solid pitch black background, have been refined, given a stronger focus and a minimalist character, along with a sense of inherent mystery and uncertainty about whether the depicted subject is in fact alive or dead matter. The new body of work was exhibited in Stockholm and reviewed in a number of Swedish newspapers, such as Dagens Industri,, Expressen and Svenska Dagbladet, amongst others

Camner's work is represented at the UBS Art Collection, Swedish Art Council and Magasin 3 Stockholm Konsthall.

In 2012, Wanås Konst Förlag published a picture book with the works of Anna Camner, titled The Sick Rose.ärer/Konstnär.aspx?fid=62
