Anne Moses


The human form has always intrigued Anne Moses. The face and body encompass a universal recognition of emotion and sensuality seen up close with detailed observation. Moses believes that we have an innate response to the mimetic representation of our own image; it is something we are fascinated by, and conditioned to respond to. Her approach to painting takes this concept into another realm. Working in layers of transparent colour and oil glazes, she executes larger than life images that deal with fragments of life seen on the micro level: the portrayal of an elusive touch or feeling; introspection; the detail and minutiae of life.
