Anna Proctor

Originally trained in Graphic Design I became a painter because I felt compelled to work with my hands and thrive on creating physical works. I have exhibited and sold work internationally as well as in the UK. My focus is largely on the use of colour and the way colours relate to each other and interact. Colours are hidden and revealed, some are dominant and some are recessive. Creating texture and movement is also intrinsic to my work.
My paintings are tactile and layered, drawing the viewer in, provoking an emotional response. Some are calm and serene whilst others are more upbeat, more energetic. I want the viewer to feel a certain way, which is always positive. The interaction of colors, how they react to each other and are hidden and revealed is at the core of my practice.
I love working with colour because it has so many nuances and is constantly fascinating; the associations and combinations of colour are very interesting to me. I rely on instinct whilst painting. I really enjoy the journey, the process of making the work. I don’t have a picture in my mind of what the end result will be.
