Anavi Mullick

I make paintings that record fleeting moments that I observe in daily life. I notice people who are going about their day and something about them catches my eye. I resonate with them; I see myself in them or see qualities of them in me. I empathise with the figures I paint and use colour to create an emotional rather than physical space. My paintings capture a moment of their life that I happened to witness.
My body of work takes on different overarching themes as my thoughts and feelings run parallel to my observations. Isolation and loneliness as well as togetherness, and the longing for connection are a few themes that have emerged in the work.
