ANNA DART: Abstract painting

Anna Dart is a multifaceted and a largely self-taught artist who promote secological, climatic and social sustainability as well as mental health.

Anna Dart paints in a style that echoes works of the greats such as Malcolm Liepke, Singer Sargent, Egone Shiele and Francesco Hayez, to create portraits with an erotic potential that are both visually familiar and wholly unique.

Anna paints ordinary people of the modern digital century who appear to be inhabitants of the big cities and their own solitude. Versed in the self-projection with a sense of perpetual discovery the characters desire to connect in a profound way, to be with someone, to be loved and understood. It is all about intimacy: magnetic and sensual they let to be looked at in a return of a provocative, almost erotic gaze as an invitation to let to their personal world. It is all about a slow life: they touch, they breath, they listen, they honestly admire each other.

Anna's abstract paintings play with notions of time, space, energy, consciousness and all being through undulating flows of multiple colors creating sensual delicate shapes which activate the imaginary. Using acrylics Anna demonstrates passionate and intelligent handling of creamy and rich tones of pink, blue, green and brown; and unmistakably recognizable and elegant grey tones using watercolors which became her trademark.
