Anne graduated from RMIT University with a Bachelor in Fine Art (Drawing).
An image or a fragment of an image found in an old book that has caught Anne’s interest will become the genesis to further build and layer from several different sources as well as from different media. In an intuitive way Anne assembles the disparate cutouts to create a brand new hybrid character or scene with an entirely new identity, sometimes adding to it with pencil, paint or pen. The 3D sculptural assemblage work is applied in a similar fashion to collage by using found objects.
From the small scale collage and assemblage work Anne will free up the application and scale to make abstract paintings on canvas or board with a focus on atmospheric colour and shape.
Anne Warren’s art practice consists of collage, assemblage, digital imaging, still-life painting, abstract works, commissions and conducting Workshops in Art from her Alphington based studio.
