Annie Wildey

 

Annie Wildey is a British painter and printmaker.  She lived in New York City for many years and had a long career with the British Consulate.  In 2006 Annie decided to pursue art full time and enrolled in an MFA program at the The New York Academy of Art. She received her degree in 2008 and was awarded their prestigious one-year post-graduate fellowship. The following two years were spent as artist-in-residence in Orient, on the east end of Long island before moving to Mystic Ct in 2012.  While Annie’s primary practice is painting she is also an accomplished printmaker and has assisted master printmaker Dan Welden at workshops throughout the Northeast including Haystack School of Crafts, Provincetown Art Center, Montserrat College of Art, and The Omega Institute.

 

The artist draws inspiration from coastal landscapes of the New England region and from her travels and residencies to places like Acadia National Park in Maine, Cape Cod, The French West Indies and Europe.  Annie now resides in Westerly, Rhode Island.

 

Her work explores the ever present, all consuming beautiful and sometimes dark nature of the coastal landscape as a metaphor for the mercurial nature of our human experience. Annie brings this experience into the studio interpreting the smells, sounds, feelings, energy, movement, and emotion. The process is fluid, moving between freedom and control, accident and intention, pushing and pulling paint to translate her visual and emotional experiences of a subject in motion.

 

Annie has exhibited both nationally and internationally, venues include:  The National Museum of China, The Mall Galleries, London, The Heckscher Museum, and The University of Connecticut. Her work has also been included in special exhibitions curated by Eric Fishl, and in exhibitions alongside renowned international artists such as April Gornik and Tula Telfair.

Annie is represented by: Coastal Contemporary Gallery, Newport RI, Kathryn Markel Fine Arts, NY and Eisenhauer Gallery, MA.  

High quality fine art prints available.
