ARTmonday: Anne Beresford

Entwined at Judi Rotenberginstallation from Entwined at Judi Rotenberg Gallery, Boston, 2006

A few years ago, I fell in love with a painting by Anne Beresford at the Judi Rotenberg Gallery in Boston. It was very pale, all ivory and robin’s egg blue, with gray and black architectural-like drawings on the canvas. It reminded me of sculpture in Paris, somehow. I didn’t have the funds to buy it at the time, though I had the gallery call it back in last year to consider it for our house on the Cape (which, by the way, is still devoid of all art). I brought my husband to see it and we decided, unfortunately, that its soft renderings would be lost in the space. I can’t find an image of that particular painting online (I’m sure somebody bought it by now), but I can at least show you these . . .

    I love the one called ‘Of a Feather’. What a stunning collection. So quiet. Like surreal doodles only much, much better!

  2. These remind me of some of Warhol’s birds, curly sketches from his doodle drawings.
