Excerpts from Publications

 
Anne Marie Kornachuk paints highly mysterious tableaus of an ambiguous narrative, emphasizing voluminous folds of fabric and small hints of human figuration to illustrate emotion as products of internal and highly private dynamics. Creating landscapes of shadow and light through the manipulation of the material that drapes the body beneath, the artist is able to impart both emotional drama and theatricality almost entirely through gesture and impulse.

Eric Ernst, "Art review: The Magic of Realism at RJD Gallery", Hamptons Art Hub, 13 April 2014.
 
For pure deliciousness, there's Anne-Marie Kornachuk's "Colour Field". A nude woman with her back turned from the viewer gathers up a length of golden satin to drape around her bare shoulders. The painter has captured the way light plays on the folds of fabric and even the heft of it in a true virtuoso performance.

Karen S. Chambers, Cincinnati Enquirer, October 10, 2013
 
Lastly, however, there's this painting. Okay, so I'm violating my own injunction and talking about something from the majority end of the aesthetic spectrum, but it needs saying. It's an oil and gold leaf on canvas piece by Anne-Marie Kornachuk entitled Leaving Eden: Vertigo and it representationally depicts the image of a fallen horse, shown either just as the fall has occurred or maybe as just as it is set to righting itself again. Kornachuk has breathtakingly caught the fear in the horse's eyes and all the muscular tension of a powerful creature in distress. Visually isolated from any context, tightly focused, and beautifully rendered, there's much to see, here — much to learn from the animal, from (to borrow from the poet Michael McClure) the meat that we are.

GIL MCELROY in Oshawa, Bowmanville, Peterborough, Akimbo, 03/20/12
 
As soon as I walk in the room, I am stunned. Like seeing the man who stole your heart after being away for three years, it's a sudden thunk, a drop of your whole core.

It is not the size of the paintings, but of course that has to be a part of it, doesn't it? No, it is the work. The woman gripping her white dress below her hip in a sexy sway. Another turning away, straining against a poppy red dress emblazoned with a Phoenix. The paintings are powerful and sensual, in an in-your-face manner but yet with a subtle touch. The dichotomies fill me with sheer joy and yet I am dizzy from overstimulation. I feel the need to simultaneously run and sit down. I am thrilled and exhausted. I haven't felt this way in years.

The works are thanks to Anne-Marie Kornachuk, and like a song that manages to sum up everything you have ever thought about life, I am completed besotted and feel like a sudden evangelist — everyone must know about this talented artist.

Stephanie Dickison, "Stunning", Surface and Symbol Magazine, October 2006
 
Anne-Marie Kornachuk's oils on wood and canvas were also notable for their fine atmospheric detail. All of her paintings depicted figures, sometimes just partially, in close-up and usually reclining. No faces were shown, but the bodies, clothed in red-satin pajamas and awkwardly posed, are provocative.

Study in Red (Kerry) was an example of one of Kornachuk's exquisitely detailed figure studies. Deeply creased clothing and flesh contrast with a melancholy under-lit background. Small sections of exposed flesh and particularly vulnerable looking; soles of feet display strange, usually hidden wrinkles, and the back of the neck is unprotected. The texture of the clothes and flesh are lushy rendered and transmit a sense of imminent danger.

Alice Burdick, "Poser's", Arts Atlantic, vol. 20, no.1, Spring 2003, p.55.
 
Anne-Marie Kornachuk's paintings beckon to be explored close-up. The subtly transparent skin of her subjects and the clarity and complexity of the velvety fabric that she portrays are mesmerizing visual textures. Kornachuk begins each painting by roughly blocking in the composition. She then builds up the surface with successive layers of glaze scrubbed and rubbed on with a brush and her fingers. Kornachuk works close to the canvas, carefully modulating fold and form so that the image retains its coherency even when viewed at close range. At this close distance, body and fabric become abstract references to organic forms, and the eye glides over these shapes as it travels through the picture. The process of their production calls for these paintings to be experienced at a similar distance, whereby we can easily verbalize the subject matter as we approach but then become caught up in their abstract sense of volume and space.
