Anne Mestitz


Anne Mestitz is a visual artist and intuitive maker whose primary focus is on colour, form and line as a means of expression.  Underpinning these formal devices is an enquiry into the complicity of the viewer, the nature of visual perception, making “concrete” sensation and the role of aesthetic experience in the work.

Anne completed a PhD in 2011 and has taught Sculpture and Drawing at the Tasmanian College of the Arts on a casual basis over several years. Recently Anne visited New York for a month as a result of being the Tasmanian recipient of the Qantas Award.
