The painter

Born in Paris in 1953, Anne Kolin first became interested in contemporary art while living in Amsterdam in the mid- 1980s. A frequent visitor to the Stedelijk Museum, she was particularly inspired by the work of Fautrier, Tapies, and Karel Appel.

On her return to Paris, she obtained a Masters Degree in plastic arts at the Sorbonne, where her work explored both the figurative and the disfigured.

From 1998-2000, Anne Kolin worked at the Strasbourg prison as a consultant in modern art workshops. Different techniques were introduced, such as collages and torn posters, which she has continued to develop.

Since 2005, her practice has become increasingly concerned with gestural painting and material abstraction.

Anne Kolin works and exhibits regularly in Paris and New York.
