About Annie Wildey

Annie Wildey is a British painter and printmaker whose subjects are the weather and its effects on various landscapes. Wildey’s paintings feature images of rolling landscapes in fog, snow-laden roads, and the tides on beaches and rocks. She has also made a series of urban landscapes depicting underpasses and bridges in New York, wanting to capture the “accidental environments comprised of structural voids between supporting columns and girders.” In printmaking, Wildey favors monotypes, and works exclusively in a monochromatic palette so as not to detract from the impact and essence of her images, as she describes. As a result, these monotypes tend towards gestural abstraction.
