About

Off Balances, 2020 48" x 42" Mixed Media Abstract Painting on Canvas Signed This series evolved at a strange time and from an unexpected source. Artist Annie Mandelkern uses unconventional materials in her work, she paints with tools for laying tile, ceramic tools and other unexpected implements. In the beginning of quarantine, Annie realized she needed to stock up on painting supplies. She placed an order and “threw in a couple of larger paint brushes. I rarely use an actual paint brush, so I have no idea why I ordered them!”. Annie loved how the paint spread smoothly along the surface with the new brushes. Next came discovery, how to integrate the new technique into her work and make it her own. At the time, Annie was beginning a commissioned painting for a design client. For a reason that she could not identify at the time, she began creating arches, going “up down and all around” with curved lines and forms. Upon reflection, Annie realized she was influenced by the design, the curves and arched shapes of the chairs ordered for the project. This one painting led to more, a series developed and an exploration of the new brush strokes, color and forms. Annie Mandelkern was born and raised in New York City and has devoted her educational and professional life to art. She attended New York’s highly selective Fiorello H. Laguardia High School of Music, Art and Performing Arts and then earned a BFA at Syracuse University. Annie has worked in many facets of art and design and began her interior design career working for several prestigious firms in NYC. She now heads her own interior design firm. Some of Mandelkern’s paintings and works on paper are inextricably bound to her work as an interior designer. She is often commissioned by her clients and for these projects, she imagines what she would like to see in a particular space as a designer, and then creates it as a fine artist. In her non-commissioned work, Mandelkern works on several paintings at once drawing inspiration from quotidian encounters with people, objects and experiences. In much of her recent work she employs mixed media including acrylic, charcoal, ink and some collage elements. Annie Mandelkern lives with her husband and three children in Port Washington, New York.
