Biography
 

Originally trained as a designer in Paris, Ana Bianchi later studied fine art at Chelsea, the Byam Shaw and Central St Martin’s in London.  A painter and sculptor, she has exhibited widely in the UK and Europe.  A Gloucestershire resident, she has exhibited at the Stroud House Gallery, the Anderson Gallery, the Brian Sinfield Gallery in Burford and the Dollar Street Gallery in Cirencester. She has been a regular contributor to the biennial Quenington open-air sculpture show, Fresh Air, which she curated from 2005 to 2015.

 

In London she had solo painting exhibitions at the Gavin Graham in 2002, 2003 and in 2005 at the COSA Gallery, Ledbury Road. She had a fourth solo show at the St Giles Street Gallery in Norwich in May 2009.  She was a selected artist at the 2009 Discerning Eye exhibition and had a double show with Cornish artist, Caroline Delevingne, in Cork Street that same year. In May 2013 she exhibited with John Penrose Fine Art in a solo show at the ROA Gallery, Pall Mall, London and took part in a three-man show at the Mark Jerram Gallery, Sherborne in April 2016.

Now confining her work entirely to painting, in her most recent works Ana Bianchi handles the texture, colour and form of the land with a sculpting hand, almost carving the paint on to the canvas with a layering of colour and varied brushwork. Often inspired by the landscape that surrounds her, these paintings are explorations of the cutting and layering of shape and colour in a rural setting and they combine a rich palette with a tendency to abstraction. These works maintain a delightful equilibrium between representational landscape and landscape as abstract inspiration. The simplicity of her still lives and figure paintings belie the complex formal qualities that underpin her work.

Her work can be seen at the Moncrieff Bray Gallery, the Flint Gallery, the British Art Portfolio and the Mark Jerram Gallery.
