Acrylic on canvas, 2019

Ann Marie Auricchio

New Orleans, LA

My work is an expression of energy, and my constant visceral response to both physical and psychological places.

I’m a city person, and I feel the rhythms, textures, and grittiness that are inherent with those places. Sometimes I thrive in it, and at other times I am dwarfed and isolated from it. I am equally entranced by the light that dances over its structures, as I am with the vibration of lines running around creating its own form of written language. The complexities of this environment become a metaphor for raw emotions and states of mind that we all share.
