Anne Fellner’s narrative, expressive paintings navigate a multitude of genres. Using synthetic fabrics instead of traditional canvas or linen as an image carrier, she projects figures, signs, landscapes onto the strongly colored backgrounds in oil, acrylic, enamel, glitter, nail polish, spray paint. The synthetic backgrounds function as screens, their mood-setting colors influencing the content of the painted gestures. She works with literary and cinematic references and her paintings can often be “read” as crime stories or thrillers.
