Statement

Annie Fourguette is a Canadian born artist raised in Southern California, best known for her work in photography. Her images include landscapes, urban scenes, and an extensive body of work, “Women Who Ride”, a portrait series of women who ride motorcycles. Her work has been included in BMW Magazine, Women on Wheels Magazine, as well as in films. Her images are in many private collections, some international, including Switzerland, France, Canada, and Hong Kong.

Most recently Annie has added accents of neon light to her images. The first series, Gull Cottage, features amazing black and white images, printed on metal, with accents of neon. These photographic sculptures are the first of this mix media. These photographs give the observer the sense of flying along with the gulls, sharing the thrill of weightlessness. The soothing light from the neon accent evokes the ethereal luminosity of alpenglow.

Asked why she chose to add neon, Annie says, “I have always had a fascination with neon. My father owned a chain of liquor stores when I was growing up. When the beer and cigarette sales reps came in with a new neon display sign I would always ask for the old ones. I had at some point in my teens, at least 32 signs in my room. Unfortunately my mother did not think beer and cigarette signs were proper decoration for my room and out they went to various people. In any case, with the onset of the digital age everyone is now a “photographer” and I wanted to do something different. I took a workshop with Lili Lakich which renewed my love of neon and it grew from there.”

Works released include “Whoa”, “Final Approach," and “Whatever,” the first three installations of the Gull Cottage series.  Also released is “Endeavour; The Final Voyage.”, a photograph of the space shuttle enjoying a victory lap above Los Angeles atop its trusty 747. Other works soon to be released include more on the Gull Cottage series, a series on  Mayan Ruins, a playful animal series, and “Muse”, a sketch based on a photograph  of  Broadway Star, Idina Menzel  (the photographer is unknown).
