ANNA CURZON PRICE
Artist statement - ESOP 2021
Taking ordinary, everyday experiences as her starting point, Anna’s paintings explore the imaginative and magical possibilities which exist in the mundane. Often small sketches that she makes from observation of day-to-day life are transformed into much larger and more colourful works.
Anna has a background in social anthropology and this inspires the way in which she relies on her sensory memory and direct experiencing of her subject matter. By playing with scale and gesture she explores elevating the kitchen sink into the monumental and a row of cups into an abstracted landscape. For Anna, painting is a practice which allows her to reflect on the strangeness of her everyday life in a hyper-networked, environmentally fragile, postcolonial world.
For the last few months, Anna has become particularly interested in the relationship between bodies and their environment. She has been exploring this by investigating the experience of swimming at a leisure centre. Her paintings of bodies in water explore the unstable boundary between our conscious insides and the outside environment in which we find ourselves. Through delicate washes of colour and ephemeral imagery she seeks to explore ways of representing the human deeply embedded in the world around them. By immersing herself in water, reflecting on this by jotting down observations and quick sketches and then remembering these fleeting moments while painting in the studio, she seeks to represent in paint elusive and unphotographable experiences.

PAINTING PERSONAL PROJECTS taught by Dan Coombs and Sikelela Owen is a year long programme one day week, some of which was on Zoom this year during lockdown. The course involves shared projects to begin with leading to developing an individual body of work whilst receiving guidance and mentoring in a supportive community of artists. All our tutors are practising and exhibiting artists who are working on their own projects and are there to help each student clarify and develop their short and long term goals. Limited to twelve places only as are all our courses, the tutors have time to help each person progress in the distinctive ways they need to as individuals. For the new academic year from October 2021 this course will be taught by Sikelela Owen and Archie Franks
