Abstract Surfer - Wahine
This abstract oil painting of a surfer girl surfing inside the wave is inspired by a feeling of rebirth and of course, my life in California. Doesn't the "barrel" look like she's bursting out? For me, it's a rebirth. Mother ocean. Female archetype.
For this painting, I used different size scalpels and brushes.
DIMENSIONS 30x20 inches.
I OFFER LAYAWAY PLANS. The painting is also available as fine art prints.
About the Artist
California-resident and Montreal-born artist Ane Howard, an abstract figurative mixed media artist, tells an emotional and imaged story in the portraits and landscapes she paints. Using deconstructed form born out of the expressionist movement, bold paintbrush, and contrasting hues of colors, she imbues each brushstroke with meaning to evoke moods and ideas. Following a lifelong exploration of different art forms, Ane is dedicated to full-time painting. Speaking about her passion for oil painting, she said, "Nothing has ever fulfilled my need for self-expression the way painting does." Ane's vivid oil paintings have been shown at various Art Galleries in California, such as the well-known Five 3 Gallery, Claudia Chapline Contemporary Art Gallery, Teri Lang Studio, and the Marin Society Artists, and Art Works Downtown. Her artwork has also been exhibited in the London Tube and Berlin Metro as part of Public Art. Her work is owned by collectors in North America and Europe. Ane has an upcoming show at the International Art Museum of America in San Francisco. She is represented by Five 3 Gallery in Laguna, California.
