Annie Finn engages with her audience by provoking a range of emotional responses and stimulating debate about Abstract Art; this includes the creative process and materials used. A qualified teacher of Art and Art Textiles with a lifelong interest in The Visual Arts Annie has an experimental and developmental approach to work.
‘My work is of an abstract nature and is often characterised by the use, division or repetition of the rectangle.’ Annie Finn
The abstraction and distortion of everyday domestic and industrial images and objects results in non-representational compositions which inform her work in a number of ways.
Annie often chooses to build up numerous layers of medium to create depth, richness, subtlety or ambiguity. The use of materials, including the characteristics of soft pastel and acrylic paint, complements her working methods and her approach to art. Annie is inspired by the definition of boundaries and spatial ambiguity and is constantly experimenting to develop a variety of effects and moods in her work.
As well as individual pieces, Annie often produces a ‘series’ of work connected or linked by one or more elements, or a common theme.
