DIRECTOR and CURATOR, KAB Gallery, Terrigal

This oil painting by Shelly Anfield presents the sunset view with a glowing horizon and dreamy cloud forms. Her delicate painterly approach gives a soft finish, making this a calming work to enjoy. This painting draws my eye to the clouds, searching for recognisable shapes or formations and reminding me of fun pastimes as a child gazing into the sky. This feature could be enhanced if the painting was positioned at the end of a corridor or as a welcoming entranceway statement.

FAIR DIRECTOR, The Other Art Fair

This image conjures up memories of long days spent up along the northern coast of NSW watching the sunset over the horizon. The blurry effect along with the loving title, I Dreamt Of You, evokes these feelings of nostalgia. It takes you away for a moment of contemplation – which is what artist Shelly Anfield hopes to inspire within her works. I think this piece would suit many environments – a neutral beach house up on the coast, a cosy study or bedroom.
