Par le biais de mon blog.....
L'artiste Anna Kincaide vous parle de son style.....
Over the last year, I have been driving my paintings in an innovative new direction that is really beginning to show who I want to become as an artist. After months of research and experimentation, I have found myself drawn to the age-old idea of portraiture, but with a twist: I am still intrigued by the idea of omitting the eyes in my paintings, something I started in my early work and have continued to carry with me as I evolve. I love the anonymity this creates for the viewer and the subject alike. People will leave the piece with different ideas and feelings and I like having that kind of flexibility in my work. My strongest inspirations are fashion and design, so I dove into the idea of creating portraits of stylized women disguised by avant-garde, floral-inspired hats. Body language becomes very important in my work because I don't rely on facial expression to convey emotion like most figurative artists do. Instead I rely on gesture, clothing, and color. The new pieces allow me to convey texture, design and abstraction with a freedom I have never known until now. I have fallen in love with the expression, mystery and disguise the hat pieces create. Costume has the ability be empowering and beautiful, allowing us to become someone new.
While still navigating this new direction, I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to study with Milt Kobayashi for two weeks over the Spring. He is an incredible painter and inspiring teacher and mentor. It was a pivotal time for me, and I came back from my workshop hungry to implement all I had learned. I admit this was challenging at first but working with Milt helped me learn to trust my instincts and push my technique and subject-matter further. I am finally finding my stride and the new pieces feel more intricate and full of life than ever.
The nature of fashion is all about change and experimentation and I am thrilled to see where this will take me
