The figure of the baby, of innocence and purity contrast with the animal, heavy and lumbering forward slowly. They are moving from darkness to light yet where they are going and what the future will hold is uncertain. The light falls across the child while the animal casts a deep shadow on the ground.
The boar of life 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.
