About the Work
"Glass Houses" is a painted set, or “diptych.” designed to be displayed side-by-side, as the left image and its narrative bleed into the right. However, both paintings can also stand on their own as singularly balanced compositions. This piece is part of Nicholls’ Strange Botanica Series which is lush with green layers and symbolic narrative undertones. Here, the artist has created a jungle-like panorama that bounces between glass houses or conservatory-type structures. The broader underlying theme of Glass Houses contemplates the contradictions of isolation vs. connection and transparency vs. privacy. This is the artist’s visual exploration of how these contrasts tend to shape the way we respond to our environment and communicate with one another. “Glass Houses (Left)” is a 30 x 48 – inch acrylic on canvas.
About the Artist
Anne Faith Nicholls is a truly unique addition to the contemporary art scene—she provides a refreshing look at the soul of the modern woman and artist. Born with a backwards heart, Nicholls has an inner strength that is inspirational and captivating. Her sense of adventure and exploration began in Victoria, British Columbia. Restless to travel to new places, she made her journey south to San Francisco, graduating from the Academy of Art University, and then on to Los Angeles where she resides today. She has traveled the world with a focus on studying the masters. This commitment to traditional painting has contributed to the development of her own unique style of utilizing both oil and acrylic to achieve a signature layered look and a saturated, antiqued, color palette.
