“My work is a time-line, storytelling where I’ve been and where I am now, connecting me with the collective art spirit of the past and of tomorrow.” – Anne Winthrop Cordin

ARTIST STATEMENT:

I am interested in altering the usual way of looking at ordinary things and paint allows this expression in a direct and satisfying way. My art is about possibility and paradox, memories and emotion. I am excited about color and shape, by irony and mystery and by all of the questions that arise from the conception to completion of a painting. I am in love with the painting process. My work is a timeline, storytelling where I’ve been and where I am now, connecting me with the collective art spirit of the past and of tomorrow. Art enriches all aspects of my life and my life fills me with gratitude and joy.
