Ana Gribbons, visual artist

Welcome

Painting is a process of discovery that gives me much delight. It is a way to express my interpretation of the world around me. I paint in a representational style in acrylics because the medium is so versatile.
Intensity matters. I have an overwhelming need to convey the intensity of my response to what I see – nature and urban sites in all their splendour. I marvel at the beauty and wonder of life that is all around me–even in the colourful sprawl of graffiti in an alley.
To me, a successful painting has different elements that work together to direct the viewer’s attention around the canvas, even though the painting is itself physically static. It’s a wonderful challenge to create images that express the proper harmony or balance of composition, colour, tone and brushwork.
Patterns of light and shadow also reveal an intimacy – moments that occur only once. I want to capture these unique moments for the enjoyment of the viewer so that they can evoke their own feelings of memory or mood from the scene.
