Internationally-acclaimed artist Anne Sudworth will light up Whitby Gothic Weekend with some of her mesmeric paintings.
Anne is a British artist, known across the globe for her magical trees and haunting moonlit landscapes.
She has exhibited widely and her work can be found in many collections around the world including Germany, America, Russia, Japan, New Zealand, and the UK.
“As a professional artist, I have quite a hectic schedule and most of the time I exhibit my work through a number art galleries and art dealers,” she told the Whitby Gazette.
“I love doing a big London show or exhibiting at one of the major art fairs but these are very formal events and you don’t usually get to interact with people apart from during the private view.
“So it’s always nice and refreshing to do something different, something more relaxed and informal, where you can be on hand to chat to people about the art, and exhibiting at the Whitby Goth Weekend allows me to do just that.
“I adore Whitby and the Goth Weekend is such a special event – I’d never miss it.
“My team and I always have a stand downstairs in the Pavilion and we’ll be exhibiting there this weekend.
“I’ll be showing a variety of works, framed and unframed prints including some of my paintings of Whitby Abbey as well as some of my tree paintings and moonlight scenes.
“There will also be books on my work, greeting cards and a new range of ceramic mugs on display.
“My inspiration comes from many things including dreams, nature, mythology and folklore and particularly the landscape.
“Much of my work is concerned with nature’s more mystical aspects and this is best reflected in my ongoing series of paintings I call my Earth Light Trees.
“Most of the scenes I paint are imaginary but I also love to capture real places too, especially ruins.
“I love ruins, particularly those in beautiful and wild places and my favourite is Whitby Abbey. I’ve painted it several times.
“To me it’s one of the most beautiful and charismatic of all our ruined abbeys and its setting couldn’t be more dramatic and atmospheric.”
