Anna Bush’s Artistic Process
Influenced by artists such as Mark Tennant, Gerhardt Richter and David Storey, Anna humbles the distinction between realism and abstraction. Painting from a collection of Polaroids and Kodachrome slides, each painting presents a unique colour scheme - depending on the type of film stock, filter and techniques used in the original photograph. Anna generally intends to recreate the portraits with limited brushstrokes, leaving space for imagination and encouraging viewers to fill the gaps with their own memories and interpretations.
Press and Exhibitions
Anna has artwork in private collections around the world. She exhibited her work in the 250th Royal Academy Summer Exhibition in 2018. In 2021, she took part in The Turner Contemporary Open show in Margate, UK. Works by Anna were hand-selected by Dario Illari, Founder of Jealous Gallery and Artfinder Curator, for their Top Print Picks 2021. Anna now lives and works in Oxfordshire, UK.
