Annabel Mednick

I am a figurative artist, based in Ipswich, Suffolk, where I make expressive paintings and portraits full of nuances of light, colour and atmosphere mainly in oil on canvas.

I am probably best known for my paintings of the figure in an interior. 

 

I like the drama of the quiet moment, the simple everyday things that we all experience… In between the big events of life – people are living normal lives; my work is a celebration of that.

I have always worked from the model as part of my practice. I use the tiny observations to build the drawing or painting; I look at the subtle changes of light bouncing off the skin, the delicacy of tone. I enjoy the rapid marks that capture the immediacy and dynamic form of gestural poses.

I have exhibited widely and I have won awards for my portraits, including a prize at the BP Portrait Awards at the National Portrait Gallery, I regularly exhibit in venues in London, East Anglia and abroad, and I have my work in numerous private collections.
