'Foxhole' is a grade II listed building and was originally built as a fishermen's cottage in the late 18th century. The cottage is renowned for it's dramatic setting in the secluded bay part of the Glyn-y-weddw Estate. Anne Aspinall will be exhibiting the exquisite oil painting of Foxholes as part of the Winter Exhibition at Contemporary Six, running from 7 December - 31 January. The painting demonstrates Anne's incredible understanding of colour and pays homage to the historical location in Spring and Summer.

Anne Aspinall (MAFA) was born in Manchester in 1949 and trained at Manchester College of Art & Design. Anne has exhibited widely across the U.K. and her paintings can be found in collections over Europe, the United States and Australia. The Scottish painters William Gillies, Anne Redpath and Barbara Rae have a profound influence in Anne’s work as well as the Catterline landscapes of Joan Eardley.

In the late eighties Anne travelled extensively across Europe and North Africa. The trip had significant influence over her creative practice, particularly the texture and patterns found in African architecture, tiles and textiles which Anne proceeded to explore in mixed media artworks.

As Anne’s career has progressed, the process of oil painting has captured her artistic attention. Anne often talks about the direct nature of oil paint and its ability depict the depth and strength of colour in the landscapes she immerses herself in.
