Annie Clavel Artist Bio:
In my work I explore the visual language of relationships between color, shape, light and movement. I let my instinct and intuition guide my work to capture parallel moments of time. My work is about duality: freedom and confinement, theory and knowledge, complexity and simplicity, randomness and predictability. With the combination of these abstract ideas, along with various themes of relationships, I am able to advance the images toward a personal resolution. Elements of modernism, abstract expressionism and contemporary abstraction influence my paintings. I look to the work of Gerhard Richter, Sam Francis, František Kupka, Pierre Soulages, Matisse, Franz Marc, René Descartes, Benoit Mandelbrot and Antoine de Saint-Exupéry as important influences. The technique I use the most is mixed media on canvas. I use acrylic paint, fluid or heavy body, I use acrylic medium, I might add watercolor and collage with paper or fabric. I like to paint with different sizes of brushes, from very small ones to extra large. Adding and substracting paint is the key to my final creation, with layers of paint being removed, added, partially covered, scratched through, and scraped.
