In this work the figure in motion is turning away, it’s always interesting to paint movement in figurative work. The figure is in a landscape, a parkland, the wide sky and trees in motion. It is both a mythical world and a real place. The young man is turning away, mirrored in a reflection, a ghost of who he once was or is yet to be.
Turning 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.
