ANNE POURNY

PAINTER

" Perceive the invisible under the visible "

Anne Pourny is a French painter who plays with light and sound as well as the comparison of different aspects of nature to tell a story about the world around her. She is specifically interested in the ocean, as she has lived by it for quite some time, and the drama and motion of the waves influences much of her style. She has done residencies in both China and Japan, and as a result she began to draw inspiration from Chinese philosophy (such as Zen and Taoism) in the methodology behind her creative process. The juxtaposition of her meditation and the spontaneity of nature creates a unique outlook on the environment that testifies to the intensity of the dynamics of the world through the language of abstraction.
