Anne Wallace

Anne was born in the Midwest in October of 1954. Her extensive education has included tuition at the Milwaukee Area Technical College, the University of Wisconsin in Milwaukee, George Brown University in Toronto and Colorado Women’s College in Denver. The aesthetic of Anne Wallace’s work rests in its silence. She incites a solitary transaction between the viewer and the painting – a private and intimate meeting encouraging an undisturbed absorption of the image.

Using the canvas as a single plane, Anne chooses to stress the two-dimensional nature of painting, rejecting illusions of depth and gestural brushwork. She applies colors in blocks spanning the entire surface to that suggest the composition may be yet a detail of a larger field.

The architecture of the canvas divides color into lateral and horizontal zones. Intimate and contrasting tonal relationships emerge among dry earth tones of sienna, sage and ochre to create an illusion of transparency and translucence.

Veils of color lend a powerful sense of mystery to Anne’s work, accented at times by an oriental symbol or a typeset letter either slightly hidden or boldly displayed within the composition. These letters, as if hints in secret code to a larger message, are placed deliberately as a focal point to exalt the mind above the banal contingencies and rivialities of social life to a place more spiritual, contemplative and intimate.

Anne’s work is exhibited and collected across the world.
