Anne Lise Kaaby is an extraordinary Norwegian painter whose style is difficult to describe in the common sense of the term, denoting her ability to paint and express herself through the masterful use of the ultimate visual language. Her work ranges from traditional landscapes to figurative painting; from abstract expressionism to a unique fusion of cubism and surrealism.
Her compositions are permeated with magical, dream-like, noetic elements typical of the Surrealist movement but with the spontaneity of Abstract Expressionism reminding us of Arshile Gorky, Paul Klee and Kirchner.
Anne uses strong, vibrant colors to highlight intensity and depth. The graphic elements of line, color planes and space are set in motion by an energy that comes directly from the artist’s mind and envelops the viewer in a warm embrace, an emotional symphony of analogous and complementary colors.
The adaptation of the figures is divided into forms by color, and held within the images, displaying a multicolored array of geometrical forms that together with her loose, rough brushstrokes define the subjects in a harmonious and rhythmical movement of levels and planes that enthrall and capture the viewers’ sphere of emotions, and awakens his attention to details we gradually discover more of.
Unlike traditional perspective which creates the effect of looking through a window into a three-dimensional world, Anne’s compositions draw attention to the surface of the canvas and to the construction and deconstruction of the form in a way that reminds us of Braque, Gris and Cubism.
Anne Lise Kaaby is a complete and talented artist. A worthy representative of today’s contemporary art scene. (Karen Lappon)
