ANNE GORDON FRITZ


Statement

I am inspired by the world around me. As I see Nature’s earthly gifts, I am compelled to express their beauty on silk. I began painting with water colors as a child and continued until 2001, when I discovered painting on silk. Using French dyes, soy wax, clear and color resists on this marvelous fiber, I continue to be fascinated and amazed as the colors flow into brilliant shapes, indeed, sometimes painting themselves as the dye weaves through the silk. For added texture and depth I often use kosher, rock, and sea salts, alcohol, silk embroidery threads, and beading.

I moved to Albuquerque NM in 2012. I enjoy painting Southwestern landscapes and plants in my own back yard. I still love painting waterscapes, flowers, and birds from other locations. I would be happy to create a scarf, wrap, or painting for you.  Look for my silk art in exhibits throughout Albuquerque. Please contact me at 404-213-3772 or annegordonsilks1@gmail.com
