Ann Haessel (Back Country #1)

Ann Haessel
Back Country #1
mixed media, 2009
12 x 10 x 2.5"

Ann works intuitively while being driven by her inner feelings and views on social issues.   Recent organic pieces are very textural.  These unusual works combine abstraction and realism and are open to interpretation.  She creates three-dimensional images with multiple layers of different media.  Many pieces portray the environment with its continual evolution which is a metaphor for change.  Unusual products are used and often burned to represent the complexity of life.

Ann’s art is has been exhibited in Italy, New York City and throughout Canada.  She hopes her art will create a better understanding among people of the world.
