Abstract painter Ann Artz presents her very first solo show at the Carmel Art Association. In Ann Artz’s words, “Painting takes me into a world with no boundaries. I paint because I love that freedom. Thus the theme for this inaugural solo show at the Carmel Art Association is open-ended. While some paintings are clearly abstract and others suggest place, all reflect my interest in composition, spatial relationships and color to elicit emotion.”
“Since my earliest memories, making art has always conjured feelings of peace and strength. This visceral experience drives my creative energy. My work combines a gestural application of paint with defined shapes and delicate lines. I like creating collisions of these elements — finding peace in chaos. Painting makes me feel alive.”
Ann Artz will be giving an Artist Talk at the CAA on Saturday, June 17th at 1pm. She’ll discuss the inspiration behind her latest series of abstract painting.
