Annell Livingston

Annell Livingston’s hard-edged horizontal, vertical, and diagonal gridded neo op art paintings are filled with a multitude of hand painted gouache shapes. The abstract works offer a lively balance between the geometric and organic as variances of value and hue subtly shift through rigid linear compositions.

A Woman Standing Next to an Art Installation

Annell Livingston

Statement:

Annell Livingston’s hard-edged horizontal, vertical, and diagonal gridded paintings are filled with a multitude of hand painted gouache shapes. The abstract works offer a lively balance between the geometric and organic as variances of value and hue subtly shift through rigid linear compositions. Livingston, a native of Houston, has lived in Taos, New Mexico since 1994. Livingston has exhibited throughout the United States and abroad.

As she has stated, Livingston’s art is profoundly influenced by her environment. Living in the high desert provides an insight into the meticulous compositions. The grids may be viewed as topography mapping a large abstract plain, perfectly uniform and stable. The subtle variances of color have the effect of softness and sensuality, creating an alternate approach to design and level of emotional depth to the composition. The works help broaden our view of nature as a uniform system that is both measurable and unpredictable; the merging of these two concepts create paintings that illicit awe and beauty.
