Artist Statement
Abstraction allows me to project emotion and to play with light onto a painting, photograph, or digital work. Creating a contemporary language that no one understands can also be in some works as well. My intent is to engage the viewer into the painting and interacting with it by communicating with oneself. The intent is to evoke the viewers' emotions into unexplored territory.
Anina E. Hathaway (b. 1981) is a painter, photographer, and drawer, as well as a graphic artist. She works in styles ranging from conceptualism to contemporary abstraction. This allows her work to be applied in an array of mediums such as canvas, sustainable wood, and watercolor. The artist has shown her works in the Southwest and Midwest United States, as well as internationally.
