Salmagundi Demo

  1. 1. A N N E K U L L A F O R I G I N A L P A I N T I N G S
  2. 2. <ul><li>Artist’s Statement: </li></ul><ul><li>My paintings are about the rhythm and energy of the urban landscape: motion, repetition, color, gesture and atmosphere are my points of departure. I attempt to capture the essence of objects and places, with a form of realism that is expressive, rather than simply a recording of what I see. </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>Motion – the city is not a static environment, motion keeps viewers engaged and invites them to explore the composition. </li></ul><ul><li>Repetition </li></ul><ul><li>Color </li></ul><ul><li>Gesture </li></ul><ul><li>Atmosphere </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>Motion </li></ul><ul><li>Repetition – repeating shapes, colors, textures, and lighting patterns reinforce the sense of movement through the composition. </li></ul><ul><li>Color </li></ul><ul><li>Gesture </li></ul><ul><li>Atmosphere </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>Motion </li></ul><ul><li>Repetition </li></ul><ul><li>Color – the colors of the city are unique, I choose a limited palette of burnt umber, titanium white, cobalt, alizarin and yellow ochre, to capture the vibrancy of the city. </li></ul><ul><li>Gesture </li></ul><ul><li>Atmosphere </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>Motion </li></ul><ul><li>Repetition </li></ul><ul><li>Color </li></ul><ul><li>Gesture – gesture relates not only to figures, but to buildings, taxis, light poles and all the other elements of the urban landscape. Mood is often conveyed through gesture. </li></ul><ul><li>Atmosphere </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>Motion </li></ul><ul><li>Repetition </li></ul><ul><li>Color </li></ul><ul><li>Gesture </li></ul><ul><li>Atmosphere – this is perhaps the most intangible element. Atmosphere not only refers to the lighting and weather conditions present, but more to the mood and tone of the painting. </li></ul>
