Contemporary painter Ann Marie Webb lives and works in Wicklow (south of Dublin), Ireland. Her work takes inspiration from Baroque theatre and explores identity by obscuring and abstracting the human form. She concentrates on material and movement to create a sense of space within her paintings. Think motion, friction and intensity. Webb’s intriguing and beautiful paintings are fuelled with colour, expression and drama.
Webb completed her BA Visual Art Practice at Dun Laoghaire Institute Of Art Design & Technology (Dublin) in 2011. She went on to complete her MFA in Painting at the National College of Art & Design (Dublin) in 2014. She received the Peter O’Kane Award from the Royal Dublin Society. Webb has taken part in numerous group shows in Ireland and her works are held in private collections across the UK and Europe.
