Artist, Rose Anne Critchfield

Working out of her studio in Orinda, CA Rose Anne Critchfield executes minimalist paintings experimenting with ink, gouache, egg tempera and other materials. Pushing them to their limits with curiosity and patience.

“I had a recurring dream as a child. Something would move from my left field of vision to my right field of vision. Then a response, right to left. Back and forth, increasing in numbers until a soundless crescendo of movement would wake me up.

I’m interested in the pushback, amplification, repetition of relationships.

This interest in relationships is expressed through linework, juxtaposition of media in one painting, and composition in relation to the edges of the canvas.”
