Anne Blenker

Artist + Anne Blenker

Take a look at a tree with its full body and ascending branches. Feel the grooves in the bark and study the texture. Now fly above the land and look out to see a sprawling forest and the complexities of its surrounding terrain. You will start to see a communion between the Earth and all its formations. I am inspired by this relationship as well as the colors, textures and patterns of the natural world. Through abstraction (form, line, and color) I like to transform these elements into emotional landscapes. I am interested in the perception of space and the interchange between positive and negative. Through observation I like to understand a landscape and the complexity of its transformation through natural or man-made processes. Most recently I use aerial photography that I layer and manipulate in Photoshop to create designs that I then paint. My work utilizes technology, but is balanced with the handmade.

Blenker has been developing and evolving a personal aesthetic in her artistic endeavors since childhood. Growing up outdoors in Northern California, she began engaging in color and texture through pastels, drawings, and paintings. She later honed her skills under Kathy Reed at the Lafayette Parish High School Arts Academy in Louisiana, where she learned a solid foundation in design principles and techniques. This heavily influenced her decision to attend Pratt Institute in New York City. After leaving the Institute, she moved back to Louisiana to begin her artistic pursuits. She now lives in the Marigny neighborhood of New Orleans. She spends most of her time painting at her studio and moving through the city, embracing the culture.
