Piece description from the artist
These paintings on cradled wood panels all have a spontaneous, uninhibited quality. There is plenty of unusual color combinations, interesting shapes, and lots of texture. The paintings are meant to either hang alone or as a group. A diptych, triptych or a larger collection would look great together! I have purposely left the sides raw, with paint smudges to show my process. I am happy to paint the sides white or black if preferred once the painting is purchased. Please just let me know.
Anne Brawer Schwartz is a dedicated abstractionist whose painterly imagination remains grounded in the world of places and things. While pursuing a degree in Graphic Design from the University of Oregon and further studies at the Gemological Institute of America, Schwartz always maintained a painting practice, which she kept up during her 25-year career as a renowned couture jewelry designer. The legacy of her expertise as a designer is apparent in her abstract paintings and their considerations of detail, drawing, design principles, color, texture, and refracted light. Having some years ago rededicated herself to her painting studio, today her canvases have been shown in numerous group shows and are represented in collections around the world. She frequently works with art consultants and interior designers, placing her works in businesses, hotels, private homes, and design firms. Being based in LA, her paintings have naturally also been featured in numerous television shows and motion pictures.
