In this work we see the figure of a young boy bundled up as he hurries down the garden towards the darkness. It’s a painting about childhood, fragility, darkness that is ever threatening. An owl watches over him, still and mysterious.
Spaceboy 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.
