Welcome to Annie Broadley’s website!
Annie’s work is landscape based although it is not a direct transcription from Nature.
She is interested in themes such as the passage of time; its transient quality conveyed perhaps by ruins or in the layers of sedimentary deposits which have been laid down over thousands of millennia.
Although her paintings have their foundation in the drawings from her sketchbooks, thoughts and ideas engendered by them often cause the work to move in a different direction.
As a painting progresses, lines from a poem or a song will sometimes suggest images which although in keeping with the essence or the mood of what is being conveyed nevertheless suggest an alternative visual picture.
“The blossoms of the apricot
blow from the east to the west,
And I have tried to keep them from falling.”
Ezra Pound: XIIIth Canto
