Anne Stråtveit

Anne Stråtveit is a classically-taught artist.  She currently lives in New Zealand and attended the Julian Ashton Art School in Sydney, where, from the very beginning her developing style was compared with Cezanne's.  Her paintings show her ability to simplify the 3-D form and render it with a minimum of confident brush-strokes.
Additionally, her use of a limited palette and subtle warm and cool colour mixes, coordinates each work within its frame. Together these characterise her work.
Extensive travel throughout Africa and Norway extended her use of colour and subject matter.  Her simple, blocky fishing village houses appear almost to have morphed from the jetties and stones of the shore, and her elegant African woman seem at one with the water pots and clay bricks around them.

A large number of her oil paintings including still lifes and portraits, will be exhibited at the Cottleston Tauranga, between 14 - 30 May 2016.
