Collection: Anne Cleary

Nature, wilderness, and the wild are what fuel me as an artist. I am an observer and a participant in the human condition as it is mixed with the natural world. My work is intuitive, the energy source being the natural world- I am driven by things I experience when I am out roaming around. Watching clouds, sunsets, lightening, stars. Walking a field or climbing a sand dune. Or out on a boat in the water, on a country road on a bike. A dry creek bed, the sea. The moon.  The spaces where I suspect some other worldly energy, which some call God, exists, vibrating green and gold in a summer afternoon. All is electric with the possibility of discovery, grounded in our inter-connectedness.

As a painter, I strive to articulate the invisible but palpable energy all around me- not in literal forms, but abstractly using combinations of oil paint, acrylic paint, spray paint and markers. Sometimes I work on canvas or burlap, other times I paint on silk and other textiles.  

My work is the articulation of invisible energy and truths, things like imagination, curiosity, and wonder. I ask a lot of questions because I am inherently a seeker: What color is noon? What does sunlight sound like? Do these marks and brush strokes look like musical notation or drops of sunlight, or both? The power of evening biblical light- those resonant colors as the backdrop for darkest lavender-grey clouds. Watching, listening and paying attention to all of this is my work. -Anne Cleary

 

Anne Cleary is an abstract painter and textile artist living in the Indianapolis area. Curiosity of and reflection upon the natural world is the starting point for her work- she spends a great deal of time outside- which is her favorite place to create.  She works in a variety of mediums including acrylic, oil, and textiles.  She is continually inspired by the sheer beauty that exists just outside our front doors. She has an extensive background in music which also informs much of her work. She is a mother to three teenage children, a role she loves very much. She strives to teach them the merits of being curious people, and hopes maybe they have listened a tiny bit.
