Annie mentions her work is about “exploring the paradox between chaos and harmony to convey this utopia feeling. Whilst experimenting with surface, layers and space in a painting - I am interested by a painting telling multiple stories”

Annie Ashwell is a Contemporary Artist based in London. She studied at Bath Spa University (2017-2020), with a degree in Contemporary Arts Practice. She has been shortlisted for the Peter Kinley Painting Prize and Signature Art Prize, as well as being part of a variety of exhibitions around the South West of England, London and Spain.

She continually challenges the space in which a painting sits in today, assessing how the viewer chooses to see chaos - and how the world itself is full of uncomfortability, yet beauty.
