By Ann Gadd
A large colourful mixed media painting of a Rhino incorporating African symbols. The artwork is entitled The Safety of Swimming with Sharks by South African artist Ann Gadd.
Ann has taken her more complex expressionistic style of the past and simplified her more recent works to a more naïve yet somewhat surrealistic style.
Gone are her wild colourful brushstrokes, to be replaced by a more textured, simplified, and mature approach to her work. Occasionally her quirky sense of humour emerges in her works as in the Ambitious Sheep series. Her sense of colour has remained although tempered with experience.
Ann Gadd is a popular contemporary artist who has exhibited her work numerous times both locally and abroad.
Ann Gadd has been an artist since she scrawled her first images in crayon across her bedroom wall. (An event her parents found to be less auspicious.) After winning the Best Acrylic Painting at the South African Association of Artists annual competition, she gained the confidence to make art her career.
In 2002, she held her first solo exhibition (AVA). During her 25-year career, Ann has exhibited in London, at the Joburg Art Fair, The Florence Biennale, Art at Five (Brighton, UK), the Glasgow and Edinburgh Art Fairs, and in Belfast, as well as locally. Her paintings appeared in the House of the Year program (UK). In the 2020 ALLWOMXNMATTER Exhibition, she was voted 3rd top female artist in the People’s Choice. Ann’s paintings hang in collections across the globe.
