Ann Van Mierlo
please see gallery for current selection
Originally from Holland, born in 1943, she was introduced to painting at a young age by
her father, also a painter. In Paris, where she spent 10 years before coming to Canada,
she made herself known through drawings and watercolours. But her creative energy can
be seen in her oil paintings since her arrival in Canada. She has been teaching painting
for 16 years in the Montreal region and, since 1977, at La Maison des Arts Rive Sud,
where she is a founder member.
When she says that Expressionism was for her the biggest pictorial revelation, we are not surprised by the intensity of her art since the exaltation of the color and the stylization of the shapes indicate so clearly her attachment to this artistic movement. She lives for
color and thus causes her entire work to vibrate. She constructs her palette from privileged colors like red vermilion, green veronese, permanent purple and ultramarine blue, which feed a universe created from her personal sensations.
