Anne Sudworth

Anne Sudworth


Anne Sudworth is a British artist, working mainly from her studio in Lancashire. She has been drawing and painting since early childhood. As a professional painter she initially concentrated on racing scenes which allowed her to express her deep passion for horses. Soon she was working extensively also in landscapes, particularly those of England's Lake District, whose wildness still inspires much of her work. However there had long been another side to her painting, concerned more with the visionary and the fantastic rather than the everyday.

In 1993 she presented her landmark exhibition "Visions and Views" devoted to these more imaginative and fantastical works.The triumph of this exhibition established her as a respected gallery artist. She has since exhibited widely with many solo exhibitions, including the highly successful "Dreams and Whispers" show and "The Dark Side".

She is perhaps best known for her "Earth Light Tree" paintings - an on going series of pictures which provides a central theme in her work. These dark and atmospheric pieces show imaginary scenes in which trees, forests and woodlands all glow with their own Earth Light and life force, symbolizing the power and magic which the earth holds. She says of her work "I like to explore the idea that the Earth has a darker, lesser known side, perhaps one of which our ancestors were more aware.

She has worked in a veriaty of media but now works almost exclusively in pastel.

The first book on her work "Enchanted World - The Art Of Anne Sudworth", with text by John Grant is published this summer by Paper Tiger
