Ann Hart Marquis paints abstract landscapes. Ann is a New Mexico artist who is also a nature lover. In her abstract landscape paintings she uses acrylic, charcoal and oil on canvas. Her work creates a sense of connection, emotion and ideas about the natural world. She strives to reveal the beauty and mystery of the environment and its fragility.
Ann abstracts landscapes sometimes without any particular idea of representing an object or scene. She layers colors, shapes and lines on top of each other with little planning. For Ann, abstract art has the ability to sometimes express what other painting styles cannot. Moreover, it can address ideas that are indefinable and imaginary, existing in mind and spirit, rather than in concrete reality. Abstract art can touch the emotions in an inventive, authentic and thought-provoking way.
