Annelise Forster

Australia
1996
Statement

Annelise is primarily an abstract representational painter focusing on creating energy and movement in her work, often drawn to portraiture and figure paintings. Her painting style is lively and often full bodied working on large scale surfaces to fully immerse the viewer and create a more intense experience.

Her process of creating artworks is highly intuitive using colours and marks that she feels best portray the subject but not necessarily painting what is directly being viewed. This process is based on present emotional and mental state at the time of creation as this changes how she views both the subject and the work being created.

Allowing these elements to influence her creative process forms emotive works and intriguing relationships between the object/s and the audience as it feels more raw and accessible.
