Annie Connell

Annie Connell, Senior Exhibition 2010 An untitled image in pen and ink gouache on vellum and cold press paper by Annie Connell, Newburyport, Mass.

Connell uses ink and gouache, with limited color, to emphasize line, form and layering. In a process both slow and admittedly obsessive, she exploits the power of gestures and the aggregation of simple lines to bring forth complex forms while creating a sense of uneasy intimacy between viewer and subject.
