Anne Subercaseaux’s oil paintings are a visual exploration of forms and lights off of structures and interior spaces. The lights and shadows projected from or onto these structures entice the artist to paint abstract compositions in close proximity. In previous years, she worked in architectural and engineering firms, initially as a draftsperson and later as a graphic designer, places of work that had a prolonged influence. Subercaseaux began to observe and study sights, those which she encountered within urban and natural settings. Commutes over the San Francisco/Oakland Bay Bridge presented a spectrum of structural configurations cast by afternoon light onto the surface of the roadway span. In creating the Reflections: on Crossing series, she painted over fifty canvases and forty drawings. At present, the artist finds other structural views and interiors of contemporary spaces to observe and paint, continuing on another avenue of abstraction and mystery. Summers spent in a small medieval town in southwest France have given Subercaseaux the opportunity to observe natural imagery both within the village and surrounding countryside. Lights and shadows cast against a wall provide ground for abstract compositions. Patterns evolve, reminiscent of camouflage, ikat and Asian designs. Working with these natural forms is in counterpoint to the structural imagery of the Bay Area. Presented in combination as diptychs, they represent the urban and rural imagery the artist explores in both places.
