English-born, Southern California-based artist Ann Thornycroft is known for her large-scale grid paintings of patterned arcs that showcase the beauty of the order of geometric shapes as well as revel in fluidity and movement. Educated at the British art schools Central School of Art and Chelsea School of Art, Ann Thornycroft moved to New York City in 1969 before moving to Venice, California in 1972.
At the core of Thornycroft’s aesthetic is form, color and movement. The contrasting rigidity of the grid and the fluidity of the arcs is enhanced by sweeping washes of transparent paint that inspires meditation while bringing liveliness to any space.
Thornycroft’s work has been exhibited across the country and can be found in select public collections such as Cedars Sinai Medical Center (Los Angeles, CA), Hallmark Corporate Offices (Kansas City, MO), Wells Fargo Corporate Offices (San Francisco, CA), and HBO Corporate Offices (New York, NY).
