Ann Solyst

Ann Solyst’s oil paintings are a meditative exploration of everyday objects. Preferring to paint on a smooth surface, such as panel or linen canvas, Ann begins each painting with an underpainting and meticulously develops small, simple scenes with numerous, thin layers of paint. These intimate paintings revel in the beauty of often overlooked objects, quietly asking the viewer to come closer and delight in the delicate textures, colors, and forms.
