Zener Schon Gallery

Annie Terrazzo Los Angeles, CA

“Through the lens of the past, Annie projects a contemporary mindset that bisects historical memory and the contemporary cultural context to create a realm where the body finds an equilibrium of both ideal beauty and sexuality, as well as personal expression and ironic juxtaposition within a contemporary mind frame and the cultural memory of the past. Annie’s work instantly draws in the viewer and stands out among other contemporary art due to its familiarity, but also it’s originality and undeniable intention, and masterful craftsmanship.”

– Lauren Maley, Art Dealer for OHWOW Gallery in Los Angeles, Contemporary Art Historian, Writer, Philanthropist, LAAA Advisory Board Member, and LACMA Modern and Contemporary Art Council Member

Annie Terrazzo was raised in Breckenridge Colorado, where she spent most of her time writing plays on a 1970’s typewriter and watching old movies while dreaming of Paris. She grew up around art with a plein air and silversmith family who taught her how to make beautiful things, while in sharp contrast, her mother (a schizophrenic adult entertainer) and her father (a formula one race car driver) created nothing but chaos.

After Annie graduated from the Academy of Art in San Francisco she began her career in trash portraiture, mostly focusing on using found objects, newspapers and magazines. She enjoys creating work that allows the viewer not only see it visually but read it as well.

Her portraits have been in exhibitions curated by Timothy J Potts, Director of The Getty Museum, Jenny Gheith, Assistant Curator at SF MOMA and her work is in prominent collections at the Thopson Hotel in Chicago along side Chuck Close and in the Joan Quinn portrait collection with such artisits as David Hockney, Andy Warhol and Helmut Newton.
