Minimal, enveloping and dimensional, allow your eyes to drift into the grey oblivion of Anne Faith Nicholls’ signature wave paintings. Waves, a common motif featured in Anne Faith Nicholls’ most popular narrative works, are often used by the artist as a backdrop, symbolically depicting contemplation and movement. Here the waves are presented boldly on their own, contrasting light and shadow to feature depth and dimension, and painted in the artist’s signature style, which is actually a learned classical technique made common in 17th century Baroque theater set design. These canvases and works on paper are pleasingly gestural and perplexingly 3-D from any angle viewed, and each is unique, painted and initialed in the artist’s own hand.
