Artist’s Statement

This work portrays a mother and child, an image I am drawn to again and again. The work relates to this theme and also to the idea of memory. Both the figures and the birds are partially obscured, enveloped in mist. Rooks are considered bad luck and are associated with death and war in Celtic mythology. Is memory a continuously changing experience? Again, as in many of the works the figures are unaware of the creatures around them.

Rooks by Annemarie Stanley

  • Annemarie Stanley’s paintings are worked loosely, with areas of evident brushstroke and luminous colour while other parts are left barely touched. Every painting session explores the fall and depiction of light on form. Annemarie works quickly but will often work on a piece for a long time until she feels that there is a resolution within the painting. 




Virtual Images - Where artworks are shown framed or within a room setting the images have been created using virtual/augmented reality software in some instances. The images are provided to give an idea of the scale of the artwork in the context of a room and the style of the framing. They should not be viewed as completely accurate e.g. the scale and the style/colours of the frame may vary slightly. 

An online gallery with an augmented reality option is very forward looking and very appealing to the buyer.

The picture arrived this afternoon, very well packed and in excellent condition. It is indeed a very fine picture.

The painting is received and is a really nice small study-like work...

Thank you very much for all your help.
