The story of

Splendid Defiance IV

60cm x 60cm


The artwork Splendid Defiance IV is the fourth in a series of expressionist paintings by the artist Anna Barklem.

This artwork focuses on the figure of a woman bent over in a curved form, which accentuates the female form.

The artist removes overcomplicated details in the foreground and background to allow the viewers to focus and become consumed by the pose of the figure.

This work uses a more abstract color pallet to increase the level of surrealism. It makes the expressionism more abstract as the colors are more in line with modern abstract painting.

The artist uses a combination of broad brushstrokes over the main smaller details to give balance across the foreground and background.

The artist used the highest quality canva professional acrylics, mediums, and varnishes.
