Chelsea, New York (PressExposure) September 03, 2008 -- Agora Gallery is proud to present Anne Elisabeth Hogh in Strength in Color.
About Anne Elisabeth Hogh: The inner vibrations and explorations of self are transformed into ephemeral swirls of color in the art of Anne Elisabeth Hogh. She recognizes that painting can act as a mediator between the artist and the audience with the ability to convey, not only in a pictorial manner, but as instinctive emotions transmitted through the nuances of abstraction. "An abstract painting is not what you see: it is what it makes you feel," Hogh explains. Her appreciation for the power of color stems from her youth, growing up on a coastal region in Denmark where the soothing interplay between the ever-shifting sunlight and water captures the imagination. Hogh's process involves a very intuitive approach, layers of color are applied to the canvas in rich, velvety strokes that intermingle and contrast with vibrant hues from the underlying levels.
Anne Elisabeth Hogh's work has been exhibited in group and solo shows throughout Denmark and the United States. She currently lives and works in Illinois.
