The story of

Splendid Defiance IX

60cm x 60cm

2020

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

The artwork focuses on the figure of a woman seated and facing away from the viewer. The character looks into the background as if in deep thought and reflection.

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.
