Using imagery of sacrifice, Stolen Harvest is a meditation on the natural cycle of life, death and rebirth. It is inspired by the changing seasons of our lives. The winters may bring about the ruin of all our hard work, but the spring will bring new life and beauty.
Annie Stegg Gerard has a special love for the 18h century Rococo painters who have had a large influence on her own method. She finds inspiration in their imagination, and the dreamlike palette and lively brushwork that combine to create a wonderful atmosphere of enchantment. She believes that they sought to transport us to different worlds and fantastic places though their works. In her own work, known for it’s beautiful, enigmatic figures and lively creatures, Annie strives to depict this same transportive effect to the viewer.
