A Birmingham-born artist now living and working in Brighton, Annabel studied fine art throughout her schooling and at Birmingham City University. After moving to London, she pursued a career in art working at different galleries. Annabel’s influences include abstract expressionism, German expressionism and minimalist design.
The series is based on abstracted figures symbolically located. Annabel’s method used to create these most recent works is a combination of mono-printed forms, textured paint work and painted line work. The forms are all set against back drops resembling a cityscape from time spent living in East London and Birmingham.
The series began in London and expresses reflections of entitlement, power and exclusion I have experienced both as a woman and a person from a “working class” background. The artwork aims to bring a sense of understanding and process to some of the ugliness people are capable of projecting.
