Anne Ireland - Falmouth, ME
Painter

"Blue Oak" 2008 | Oil on Canvas | 12"x12"

Artist Statement: "My paintings are the result of observation informed by imagination--a place where the iconic is seen in the emotional context of mystery and surprise. There is a powerful energy when sky meets ground. To intensify that connection I strive to create a psychologically-nuanced atmosphere of unexpected color, giving it depth and consequence." --Anne Ireland

Sculptor & painter

"South Freeport" | Oil on Canvas | 24"x30"

Artist Statement: "Painting, for me, is about color, shape, and space. I like color. I like it for its own sake, and I like it for its expressive value. My landscape paintings are interpretations of real places. I confess that I am pre-occupied with a small handful of places. This has led me over the years to do a series of .paintings about them. Some of these places show up in my "Bridge", "Cumberland", and "Freeport" paintings. Over the past few years, in recent work, I have disassembled and re-arranged the imagery of these places. My paintings and drawings of the human figure are about the interaction between the figures and the space that they occupy. I am struck by the way in which the human figure fills and bends space. I work mostly with oil paint, acrylic, and enamel. When I start a painting I do not know in advance where it will go. When I finally resolve it, I discover what drove me to do it in the first place. I think the sources of painting, and of art generally, are unknown to us, flowing from some reservoir which is mysterious and universal." --Jan ter Weele

Maine Artists Quotes

"My aim is to escape from the medium with which I work; to leave no residue of technical mannerisms to stand between my expression and the observer."

Maine-Magazine

Since 2008, Maine Arts Scene online magazine has been promoting Maine artists and arts organizations in new and enterprising ways. We quietly revolutionized the local magazine world by offering a truly democratic voice to Maine artists and arts organizations throughout the state. For a small fee, individual artists and arts organizations can submit their press releases to present their work and promote their events on our popular site and social networks. As we reached the 10,000 visits per month milestone in 2009, we decided to push the online magazine boundaries one step further by launching the first statewide juried multi-disciplinary virtual online showcase. We created a unique virtual experience that resembles an actual gallery space, with various rooms to navigate and art work displayed to scale. In 2012, Maine Art Scene is going one step further.  Maine artists and private collectors of Maine art will soon be able to create online stores and sell their work. Arts organizations including galleries, museums, and non-profits will also be able to set up online gifts shops,  box offices and donation pages.
