Anne Vieux is interested in the optics of the computer screen, and its implications on the perception of abstract painting. This concern is translated in her paintings through visual reverberations springing from the mistranslation and slips of scale that come with digital reproductions of material surfaces. Images of holographic, translucent or gradient paper are captured and manipulated digitally via layers of warping and repetition, then printed on microfiber fabric. As a final manipulation, touches of airbrushed acrylic paint are added. This fusion of digital, photographic, and painterly procedures evokes but ultimately embraces the tension between physicality and intangibility.
Born in Michigan in 1985 and currently based in New York, Anne Vieux received her MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art in 2012 and her BFA in Painting and Art History at the Kansas City Art Institute in 2009. She recently held a residency at Mana Contemporary, Jersey City, NJ. Annka
