Anne Griffiths

Anne Griffiths' paintings seamlessly shift from landscapes to abstractions; from impressionism to modernism. What emerges is a distinct style of her own, one which articulates the landscapes of Canada through a contemporary lens.

Griffiths draws with her paint strokes. The marks are visible, connecting the viewer to the process. The oil paint becomes lifelike in its visibility - visceral. The paintings with vertical lines feel like a curtain of rain or forest tapestry. While the combination of vertical and horizontal strokes differentiate the horizon line, making the viewer feel like they're walking through a forest. The work is done intuitively based on the natural environment where Griffiths lives and works in Victoria, British Columbia.

Anne's work has been placed in numerous private and public collections in Canada, the UK, Europe and the US.
