Anna Khadine

I was classically trained beginning at 15 years of age at Chester School of Art in England. I started my working career in a theater studio in London working on scenery and props, later working as an artist’s assistant to a painter who specialized in historical sea battles. I moved to the Chicago area twenty-four years ago and have maintained a studio though I have taken time out to raise my children.

Through the tension between form and space on the canvas, my intention is to encourage the viewer to contemplate the visual story laid out in each piece. By piquing their emotions, I invite viewers to consider the meaning within the painting and to develop their own interpretation. I endeavor to create art that is both aesthetically pleasing and leaves one to question the artwork itself. Melded together are my classical training and inner emotions, with the drive to put those into art. My preference for using figurative themes and then abstracting them connects my earlier work to my most recent paintings.
