Hatheway Curatorial is pleased to present:
Annie Terrazzo has a lot to say about contemporary femininity. By combining provocative portraiture and matter-of-fact text ripped from the pages of newspapers and magazines, Terrazzo weaves original stories about characters, told through fragments of the fabricated, but seemingly collective, voice. The works themselves feel current: deconstructed, dirty, slick and pretty, but ultimately, Terrazzo’s stories are timeless and her powerful characters are classic. Her female still gazes back at the viewer. Her female is still in control of her sexuality. Her female is still unmoved by the constraints and definitions placed upon her by her enveloping culture. Annie Terrazzo’s female is the contemporary feminist’s ideal.
Living the Dream
For me, being an artist is more than painting alone in my studio. I am inspired by other artists, off-beat adventures and spectacle. I curate exhibitions, collaborate on large public art installations, am an occasional color consultant and interior designer and sometimes I sculpt. I seem to do a lot of writing, but that's just business. I live an art-filled life. Thanks for coming along for the ride.
