About Anne Riethmaier
Abstraction is alive and well in the paintings of Anne Riethmaier.
She continues to celebrate and indulge in being playful with her emphasis on ‘Colour as Subject.’ The geometric shapes and stripes tie her compositions together. Often you are teased with optical illusions that show an understanding through experience.
Colour by the way it is presented in her work is very seductive and deceptive. Exploration with the glass like resin enhances the colour considerably and imbues a sense of reality of surface and depth in the work.
Riethmaiers paintings demonstrate how the ordinary can be extraordinary.
Anne Riethmaier completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts at Elam School of Fine Arts in Auckland in 1992 and her Master of Fine Arts at Massey University, Wellington in 2008. She has work in many private collections in New Zealand and abroad. Anne continues to work professionally, exhibiting regularly.
