Anne Slater was born in 1959. She has been an enthusiastic and profoundly loving presence at Creativity Explored since 2005.
Slater works in many different mediums. In the past she has created fabric sculpture and ceramic forms. Recently her focus has been on two-dimensional work. Abstract floral patterning dominates her exuberant and colorful use of oil pastel. This strong sense of design characterizes her figurative work as well. Layered over a vibrant, monochromatic background, sequences of linked, doll-like figures filled with vibrant washes of color cover the picture plane. Often done in marker and watercolor, on paper or wood, Slater’s palette and precise compositions are animated with the movement of dance and the tenderness shown in her connection with others.
