Annie Ashwell

Contemporary British Painter

Artist statement

My work is about exploring the paradox between chaos and harmony, to convey almost this utopia feeling. Whilst experimenting with surface, layers and space in a painting, I am interested by a painting showing multiple narratives. I want the viewer to see the middle of the painting, not just the beginning and the end.

Annie Ashwell is a Contemporary Artist based in London. She graduated from Bath Spa University in 2020, with a degree in Contemporary Arts Practice, where she studied the nature of abstract expressionism and the surface and space in which paint sits. Since then, she has been shortlisted for the Peter Kinley Painting Prize, Signature Art Prize and gained experience in international art studies. Since graduating, Annie has been part of a variety of exhibitions around the South West of England and London. She is continually assessing and pushing the boundaries of painting within her practice. She was selected for an art residency 'Joya Air' in South of Spain earlier this year - where she assessed how a tranquil and isolated environment affects the ways she paints chaotically.
