Annie Ward's latest paintings are constructed abstracts which are based on her own drawings of Dorset field margins interwoven with details gleaned from historic maps and contemporary satellite photographs.

As Annie explains, ‘It’s wonderful to be able to show my latest paintings for the first time in this exciting new gallery right in the heart of the landscape which inspired it. My work is now shifting towards abstraction but   based on my own drawings of Dorset field margins interwoven with details gleaned from historic maps and contemporary satellite photographs. I’m working intuitively, constantly revising shapes and lines but allowing the final painting to bear the scars of its evolution. There is always an interplay between planned intention and spontaneity, the deliberate and the accidental, when creating such work. Traditional approaches to perspective have now been disregarded while key features such as field margins, pathways, map symbols and contour lines have become distorted or simplified, sometimes closing in on a tiny detail while playing with scale.  The resultant images are constructed abstracts through which I’m gradually developing a personal language of signs and symbols.’
