Frank Brockman Gallery: Delight in Disorder: New Paintings by Anne Hebebrand
- Date: June 8, 2019
- Time: 05:30 PM - 08:00 PM
- Location: Frank Brockman Gallery, Brunswick
This is Anne Hebebrand's first show in Maine and at the Frank Brockman Gallery. Having moved from Connecticut to Maine three years ago she is very excited to show her new body of work. Anne delights in the magical things that happen in the painting process creating order out of chaos. Her paintings are made up of multiple layers of blocks of color contrasted with gestural marks. The name for this show was taken from the title of a poem by the 17th century poet Robert Herrick, who expresses the beauty seen in the disorder of small things in life. The poet’s description of the unraveling of a shoelace is a playful metaphor for possibilities that can arise with the gesture of a squiggly line. “It is the excitement in the activity of painting and the taking of chances that keep me engaged and leads to unpredictable encounters,” writes the artist.
