Anne Kullaf’s Loosely Structured, an exhibition exploring the underlying structure and overlay of color and texture in the artist’s recent pastel, acrylic and oil works to reveal their expressive qualities, will open at the Visual Arts Center of New Jersey in Summit June 17.

Kullaf creates a sense of motion, energy and spontaneity by first carving up the space--darks and lights, shapes and colors--to define her compositions. Perspective, proportion, form and value provide the structure for all her paintings. “I am always telling my students that there is a big difference between loose and sloppy. You have to get a solid underpainting with correct values, perspective and proportion before you can move into color. Once you have that, you are free to be as expressive and loose as you want with color and brushwork but should not touch the canvas unless the mark you are making has something to say,” notes the artist and Lebanon, New Jersey, resident.

Painting for Kullaf is pure joy. Her aim is to create a sense of motion, energy and spontaneity that is the essence of vitality and life. Commenting on her approach to painting, Kullaf affirms that although she is “… not a realist in the classical sense, perspective, proportion, form and value provide the structure for all of my paintings. Expressive color and dynamic, efficient brush strokes are layered upon this foundation to create a version of reality that is expressive, rather than simply a recording of what is there.”
