ANNE AYVALIOTIS works with the landscape as she lives in it. In a review of her work, Stew Henderson wrote, "Ayvaliotis puts herself in her work - to look at her paintings is to look at her. She is one of the few painters I know who can pull a deep sense of emotion from the landscape. Her paintings are not reactions to nature, but rather they express a heart-felt involvement with it." She explains that her animal figures represent life, as in the nature of opposites and as symbols of relationship. She layers paint upon paint, sometimes leaving a canvas in the middle of its technical development, not "unfinished," but rather, she knows not to go further because the painting has already "come alive." She also says about her work, "For me it is cyclical - both life and painting. An event occurs in my life which really moves me. As a result, I grow. After something like that has happened, when I next look at nature, I perceive it in relationship to what I'm feeling." Her work is in the collection of the Farnsworth Art Museum in Rockland, Maine. Other exhibits in Maine include the Frick Gallery, the Joan Whitney Payson Gallery, Anne Weber Gallery and has been represented by the Caldbeck since 1985.
