Ann Turley

A strong interest in realistic and interpretive drawing informs my artistic vision. I sometimes juxtapose line, shape and form in the same piece creating tension between abstraction and the illusion of three dimensional space on a two dimensional surface.
After working on a series for a while in my studio, the artistic focus often shifts to my imagination and internal vision rather than from these references. One painting evolves from an earlier piece in a process that is experimental and emergent in vision and in execution.
