Artists statement: My work is three parts, all fun.  First I carve stamps, cut up rubber combs and mix paint.  Then I make my own papers.  It’s pretty much finger painting for grownups. I cover the entire floor of the greenhouse with colored patterned sheets.  Next I draw, tear paper and glue shapes onto canvas.  It looks like a quilt at this stage.  Finally I use transparent acrylics to add dimension, light ,form, and air.  I’m drawn to a push pull of flat shapes and interesting textures vs. subtle color and atmosphere.  The mantra posted in my studio is “Visual complexity; compositional clarity.”  Huh.  Complexity and clarity.  “How did you say this damn thing works?” Visit Ann Munsons’s website here: http://www.annmunson.com
