About Anne Riethmaier
Anne Riethmaier’s new collection “Tri-Colour” explores colour in the abstract and plays with the geometry of triangles. Forms and formats are manipulated in “eye candy“colours as they make a transition from one colour and shape to another.
Patterns evolve in colour geometrics to tease the viewers’ visual flexibility.
Her precise geometric forms present with a smooth surface. This modern medium helps emphasise the colour and form relationships. Every interacting colour is meditated and thoughtfully placed.
Anne has spent much of her life on the North Shore, where she still resides. She completed her secondary education at Rangitoto College and graduated with her BFA from Elam School of Fine Arts, University of Auckland in 1992. To increase her knowledge of the IB programme, she completed her Diploma in the Visual Arts in 2003, achieving an outstanding result of 7. She then went on to complete her Master of Fine Arts from Massey University, Wellington in 2008.
Anne works professionally, exhibiting regularly alongside her commitment to Rangitoto College where she teaches Art part-time. She has won several awards, including first prize in the Birkenhead Trust award in both 1993 and 1999. In 2012 she won the Corban Estate award for the best abstract painting.
