Anne-Marie Kornachuk completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts at Concordia University in Montreal, Quebec in 1993. Since graduation she has participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions in US and Canada.
While many see in her work the deft hand of a technical master - there's something even more interesting going on in the narrative of her collective output. It is only through examination of her total corpus that the phenomenon manifests itself. It is a slow, deliberate honing of a psychological entity- almost as if, in a dream, you were to watch a character materialize from a dissipating fog.
While the overall psychological landscape of the work is only clear from looking at the body, her individual works DO carry with them the seed of this. And it is clear when one interfaces wtih any of them directly. It is very clear. Some people refer to this as 'presence, some, as 'power' , 'depth' or even 'truth' (perhaps an overly opaque term), but there is one sure fact - that you are really experiencing something beyond a technical mastery of brushstrokes, color and light. There is something intensely personal that belongs to the artist and her world which is being revealed that perhaps only the artist herself is aware of - but the sharing of this secret is what gives the work it's special power. Some things are meant to simply be experienced for themselves rather than explained.
