Anne Carney Raines is currently working on her MA at The Royal College of Art in London. Coming from Nashville, TN, she has a background in scenic painting and fabrication. This field of work informs her practice in how she sets up interior “scenes” for her ideas. She uses oil paint to invent temporal spaces that evoke drama through the absence of figure. They are not narrative in nature, but rather exploring the set up or the aftermath of the main event. She was awarded the prestigious Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation Grant in 2019 in order to pursue her MA.
