Anne Subercaseaux's recent work comes from a view out a small window in a medieval house in France. The lights and shadows cast from a fig tree onto a neighboring wall are the source for the new imagery, the reflections providing ground for abstract compositions. Patterns evolve, reminiscent of camouflage, ikat and Asian designs. Working with these natural forms is a counterpoint to the structural imagery of the Reflections: on Crossing series based in the Bay Area. Anne Subercaseaux has lived and worked as an artist in San Francisco for over 25 years. She was born into an artistic family in Rochester, New York, and moved to California to study art. She graduated from the Academy of Art, majoring in illustration and design. Her postgraduate studies with Elaine Badgley Arnoux, Bob Gerbracht, and Henry Hensche led her to concentrate on oil painting, initially with portraiture, and later working with the California landscape in her “Altamont Pass” and the “Reflections: on Crossing” series. Subercaseaux’s work has been exhibited widely in museums and galleries. She has received numerous awards, including two artist residencies from the Morris Graves Foundation in 2005 and 2009, and a SECA Award nomination from SFMOMA in 2010. Her work has been been shown at Stanford University, Columbia University, The Triton Museum of Art, the Laguna Gloria Art Museum, and the Santa Cruz Museum of Art and History.
