Photographer: Annabelle Shelton
Annabelle Shelton is currently based in Milton Keynes at Milton Keynes Art Centre studios Galley Hill and a member of Market Project, a collective researching and sharing new methods or opportunities for artistic professional and economic development. Shelton creates paintings on Aluminium, which are extractions of people in place, figures floating in a white space to create semi-abstracted circles, clusters and lines bunched together. More recently she has been working with landscapes that are partially revealed and partly in the negative space.
In 2010 Shelton was a resident artist at the Aberystwyth Art Centre, Wales, where she took part in the main gallery show Five. In the same year she was selected for the John Moore’s Painting Prize. In 2011 she had a solo show at the Chapter Gallery in Cardiff. In 2013 she was awarded at the Neo:artprize 2nd prize for Black holes at Weymouth. Shelton holds a BA (Hons) Fine Art from Staffordshire University and Post Graduate Diploma & MA Fine Art from Birmingham City University. She is represented by the Rarity Gallery in Mykonos, Greece and Corte Real Gallery, Portugal. Her work is held in many private and public collections internationally.
