Anne Griffiths’ studio practice is motivated by the expression of landscape through intuitive knotting of colour and form. By using the landscape as a starting point, her paintings explore interpretations of space, distance and memory. Through gestural line work and an energetic colour palette, Griffiths creates spatial relationships and poetic interpretations that wander through landscapes both speculative and imaginative. She is interested in how we take a feeling of a place away with us in our memory, and how that energy can transform by playing with some level of abstraction in the rendering of a traditional landscape.
