Denver Artist Anna Cash-Mitchell Reveals Her "Depth"

By Don Southerton, BCW Editor

Outside an artist's need to create, their work also reveals a yearning desire for self-expression. For Denver-based Anna Cash-Mitchell her paintings are meticulously crafted to take on a three-dimensional perspective. On closer examination of the paintings, much of the work is set back within the canvas—a process Anna has perfected over the past 5 years.

Anna notes, “My paintings play with bold color and form. I use elements of sculpture with visually hidden layers to create a feeling of depth when you move around each piece. This depth invites you to experience my art in a physical way, which doesn’t come through a two-dimensional photo. In a sense, it is a reminder to be present here and now in our ever expanding digital world..."

As for the artist, Anna grew up in the foothills of the Colorado Rockies where she earned a BA in Fine/Studio Arts and a Master of Humanities at University of Colorado, Denver. Her education as an artist also included a summer painting intensive in Feltre, Italy.

More recently, and after spending nine years in Santa Monica, La Jolla and Carlsbad, CA where sun, sand, and waves had their influence on her work, Anna is now back in her home state with a renewed passion to share her art.

Anna is a member of 40 West Arts in Lakewood, CO and Kanon Art Gallery on Santa Fe Drive in Denver, CO. Anna exhibits her art throughout the Denver region. See
