Paintings by Ann Cooper

"Pattern awakens my memory and brings associations, creating dramas in which objects on the table are the players. Once the story has evolved, it turns into a still life painting."

Housed on six shelves in Ann Cooper's studio are souvenirs, touristy replicas, little statues, marbles, cut-outs and pictures, all awaiting the opportunity to add narrative content to her watercolor on paper still life. Once chosen, the objects are arranged on a table where relationships and formations develop in Cooper's mind. Some pieces are added, some deleted until an atmosphere of playfulness and a sense of story materialize.
