Anne Aspinall was born in 1949, and trained at Manchester College of Art & Design. She has exhibited widely throughout the UK and abroad and is represented in collections in Europe, the USA and Australia.
She describes herself as a colourist, and her subject here is the coastline and mountains of North Wales which she has been watching and painting all her life. The work has a lightness of touch and a sparkle which come from Anne’s observant eye and her benevolent curiosity. The houses in her paintings, often seen from a distance are like gossiping neighbours, inviting us in…
The affection that Anne feels for her subjects is clear, and the work has a generosity and warmth that is extremely welcoming. Anne’s work is a personal response to the patterns and rhythms inherent in the landscape and the subtle changes of light and colour through the seasons.
She has been profoundly influenced by the work of the Scottish painters William Gillies and Barbara Rae as well as the Catterline landscapes of Joan Eardley.
In addition to the intense colours of Morocco, her subject matter encompasses the hills and valleys of North Wales and the coastline around the British Isles.
Anne Aspinall had an exhibition with us in November 2015 and again in April 2017. She is due to exhibit again in October 2018.
