Ann Lofquist is a Massachusssetts based painter who paints in oil, both plen air and studio works. She takes as her subjects streams, fields, farms, woods and at times mountains. These are often handled in a cinematic ratio or even more severly horizontal proportions.

I find her work particualry appealing for all of the factors I mention above. Her paintings have a distinct and naturalistic feeling of place, time, atmosphere and light.

I can’t find a dedicated website or blog for Lofquist, but her work can currently be seen in a solo show at the Gross McCleaf Gallery here in Philadelphia. The show is on display until until March 2nd, 2024.

This page has some background on the artist and some information about her process.

After the show, you should still be able to see images of her work on the gallery’s site as one of their regularly represented artists.

There is a very nice film about Lofquist and her work by Philadelphia filmmaker John Thornton on YouTube.

I’ve added what I can find of other gallery representation and a couple of interviews.
