Event Description: “Dreams reveal truths concealed”.-Anne Faith Nicholls
Come Meet the Artist at her First Ever New York City Exhibition
Anne Faith Nicholls is unlike anyone else on the contemporary art scene. Her paintings offer a point of view-and suggest an energy and verve-that provides a uniquely revealing and refreshing look at the soul of the modern woman.
Nicholls’ style has been described as Neo-Surrealism, drawing inspiration from early American Folk Art, French and Socialist Surrealism, and Society Portraiture of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Her favorite artists are René Magritte, Frida Kahlo, Neo Rauch, Ingres, Alex Katz, Chuck Close, Mathew Barney and Marcel Duchamp. Frequent themes that Nicholls explores in her work are, Self-Identity, Self-Examination, The Subconscious or “Dream State” of being, travel, personal journeys and quests, love, restraint, anger, darkness vs. light, burning and cleansing, nature and home. These recurring recognizable symbols, once decoded, hint at the narrative of Nicholls paintings-Rain, Fire, A Bed, Microscope, The Heart, Women, Water, Animals, Lightening, Hands and Dark Clouds.
