Anni Adkins paints light and form. Intense pure light striking, reflecting and
swirling around sensual flowers, rounded adobe buildings, and sculpted canyon walls. These
paintings reflect the artists almost spiritual connection with nature and her unique
vision of the Southwest.
The use of such strong light and thele absence of line make her
subjects remarkably sculptural -- seeming to project from the canvass
two-dimensional plane. The artist often embraces both abstraction and realism
simultaneously, choosing to see her subjects up close and out of context, selecting
shapes, forms and hues to create compositions that illustrate the spectacular abstractions
she sees in nature.
Anni Adkins received formal art training at L'Ecole De Beaux Arts in
France and is a modern master whose fine
contemporary oil paintings have for three decades appealed to collectors around the world. The artist now devotes her time
chasing the light throughout the Southwest to paint her new series, "Desert Flowers
and Canyon Walls."
"I create art with emotional and spiritual meaning by painting the
things that most connect me to the earth. The paintings I create are my way to sharing
the incredible beauty of our planet." ~ Anni Adkins
