Anna Wilson-Hall . Hand painted landscapes

April 12, 2012

I was lucky enough to come across the work of Anna Wilson-Hall recently as she had a small exhibition of her work in a shop in Chorlton, Manchester. Anna grew up around the South Downs. She says ” I am currently painting a series of landscapes inspired by walks in and around that area. My experience of places such as Devils Dyke and Jack and Jill Hill merge memory and experience with spooky forms of illustration remembered from childhood, inspired by twisted folklore and psychic plant life ”

The fascinating part of it was, that unlike many other artists working on computers to create their work, every dot and every line in Anna’s work is hand painted.

There was something a little eighties about the style, combined with a more up to date subject matter that reminded me of artists like Angie Lewin and a tension in her work not unlike older artist David Bomberg’s The Mud Bath.  She had a great range of greeting cards too, available for sale here.

She was working on a new painting for a children’s bedroom, nice to see her sketchbook details too. Thanks for your chatty conversation Anna, good luck with the paintings.
