"After a long period of landscape painting and considering my passion for portraits, the focus of my paintings now is stylized, simplified unique figures that transmit joy, tranquility, positivity and even a little mystery. The themes of my compositions are dance, music and moments of daily life."
Professional Italian artist Annemarie Ambrosoli was born in South Tyrol, Italy. She was lucky to be tutored from an early age by her uncle, Ercole Frigoli, a landscape artist. From 1992 to 1998, she attended courses under the guidance of academic professors Claus Pack for landscape and Reinhard Adlmannseder for figure and nude courses. From 2021, Annemarie has been an International Certified Artist by the International Institut for Artist Accreditation. She was awarded several times, most notably in 2019 and 2021, the prestigious A' Design Award in the "Arts, Crafts and Ready-Made Design" category. Her name and images of her works are in many art books. Annemarie has exhibited in many countries in Europe and overseas in group exhibitions and at art fairs in Canada, Hong Kong, Dubai and in many European countries. Her works belong to private collections in many countries.
Ambrosoli's art has gone through different phases. Her early work was en-plein-air landscapes, later moving toward portraiture and currently into stylized, figurative art. Her landscapes were painted with a palette knife, quickly grasping the light and translating the shades of color on the canvas. This long period of study outdoors was a great help in later tackling painting inside the studio.
In her current work, Annemarie reduces the figure's volumes to their simplest geometric components. The face is a circle, the nose a triangle, the mouth half-open lines, transmitting an emotion of positivity. Figures are mostly rendered in profile views, facing each other. The compositions are well-planned and balanced. For Annemarie, harmonious shades and complementary colors are very important, giving a touch of liveliness to the painted scenes. There is a connection between the figures that wear original earrings and hats.
Annemarie Ambrosoli expresses her positivity, her joy and her passion for love, music and dance.
