Ann Conner lives and works in North Carolina. Using non-endangered native wood and brilliant color palettes, Conner creates colorful, conceptualist woodcuts that employ the intrinsic grain of the wood. These vibrant woodcuts employ the isolation of hard-edged abstraction to create a space defined exclusively by shape and color. Her prints are reminiscent of the spirograph drawings that so many of us made as children or use templates of sophisticated patterns and symmetry.
