Anne-Marie Kornachuk [Canadian, b 1969, Pin Court, Quebec] is a realist painter, best known for her paintings of women surrounded by reams of fabric. In her paintings the drama of the fabric takes the center stage. Working with oil and using traditional painting techniques, she is influenced by the theatricality of Baroque Art. The animated nature of the fabric speaks about the hidden internal dramas of her figures.
Anne-Marie is also known for her portraits of horses made to exact scale. Working with oil and using traditional painting techniques, she is influenced by the theatricality of Baroque Art. The horse, with its massive size, beauty and expressiveness can speak in poetic terms about emotion and experience. She meets every horse she paints, takes the reference photographs and measurements.
Kornachuk grew up in Winnipeg, Manitoba and completed her BFA at Concordia University (Montreal, QC) in 1993. Since graduation she has participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions in Canada, the US and abroad. (For a complete list of her exhibition history refer to her CV.)
She lives in Lakefield, Ontario with her husband. She is an avid equestrian and a dedicated student of dressage, spending much of her free time training and having fun with her horse.
