ANNE RUSSINOF

My paintings can be thought of as both expressionistic and minimal. I’ve always been attracted to grids and structures, and so my current imagery evokes architectural lattice or tile patterns. I am attracted to the physicality of ceramic decoration and the tile work of Latin cultures: although orderly in composition, these objects can be pleasingly imperfect and rough-hewn. Repetition in these designs serves to create a soothing focus within circular movement, something I am after using the painterly tools of pigment and light.
