About Ann Supan
There are no upcoming events
Her main interest in art is portraiture as it is her ambition to express beauty and emotion on her work. She focuses mainly on likeness as her technique and style is simple. Recently, she has been making "dual portrayal" portraits in order to make her work "thought provoking" as well.
She specializes in traditional drawing in the categories of figure drawing, illustration and shading using graphite and charcoal as her main medium. She also likes to use different mediums as shown on her selective impressionistic pieces.
Through years of practice and explorations her artworks now revolves around realistic and impressionistic form.
Although Van Gogh is best known for his landscapes, Ann greatly admire him for his thoughts and theories about art. Being such, Ann draws the line between "realism art" and the amazing "photo realistic/hyper realistic art" people call nowadays...as Van Gogh said -
- "Accurate drawing, accurate colour, is perhaps not the essential thing to aim at, because the reflection of reality in a mirror, if it could be caught, color and all, would not be a picture at all, no more than a photograph."
She takes pride on her hand drawings in terms of representing realism art though it's something not a lot of people appreciates.
Impressionism, on the other hand, feels so liberating for her even though it's the form of art that can usually be misinterpreted. The profoundness of one's imagination may be beyond the reach of someone else. She first ventured on impressionism when she brought her ANIMESIA series to life last February 2013.
As someone who has been employed by others to achieve their company's mission and vision, she tends to adopt these two in her own artist's perspective as well.
- Her mission is to master her own style that would allow her to draw portraits with such likeness and sophistication in a short period of time. This, she hopes, would be highlighted in her SHADOWS series.
- Her vision is quite unclear right now as her imagination is currently thronged with pictures of the unattainable.
She does, however, wish to see her art being displayed and cherished in as many "places" as possible.
