Audrey Anastasi
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Sunset Park



ARTIST STATEMENT: Whether the subject matter is figuration or nature, I approach all my subjects directly and unabashedly. Considering myself primarily a feminist artist, painting other women, most of my work focuses on the human face, figures, animals and nature. I prefer direct observation, and I work very rapidly. And, as with all my paintings since 1990, in my quest to discover and reveal what is most essential, the figuration works are painted almost exclusively with my non-dominant left hand. Even though recognizable as trees, I consider the birch works to be process oriented abstractions. Every painting or drawing in this series is an opportunity to be experimental, even playful, as I lay down the paint or mixed-media materials on canvas, paper, glass, or Mylar. With figurative elements, and dense repetitions, these are the forests of childhood fairytales, where one is hopelessly lost. And yet there remains a suggestion of the endless continuity and power of renewal in nature.
