Ann Marie Rousseau American


Ann Marie Rousseau employs drawing, painting and collage in her ongoing interest in the subject of line. Rousseau expands the notions of line and space in the existing and takes it into the realm of vision, insight, and reverie. Each artwork is a developed exploration of line as an elemental part of everything. Lines, both seen and unseen, are found everywhere in nature, including in the wind, in the trunks of trees, in the sounds of music, in the light of the sky, and in the waves of water. It is in their shaping and shading, their tonal gradations, thinness or thickness, that her work portrays both a visual rendition of energetic processes of perception, and a display of the inner workings of the conscious and unconscious mind.
