Chaos in Color is a collection of curiously cognizant cats and skeletons, where the cats are alive and the people are not. The entire operation is staffed by two humans and a bunch of cats who probably think they're helping but who mostly just knock things over. All of the artwork is produced by one person.
Contemporary artist Annie Dunn uses freehand digital painting to, as respectfully as possible, bring the dead back to life. A form of pictorial necromancy, if you will. Her mirthfully macabre style most closely resembles Dia de los Muertos crossed with a copy of the Sunday funnies. A special affinity for cats and an awe for the cosmos are also overwhelmingly evident.
Being a night owl who grew up across the street from an old small-town cemetery, Annie's paintings gravitate towards supernatural fiction. This comes through with her use of exaggerated color and light, misunderstood creatures, dark shadowy forests, lively graveyards, and starry night skies. In a way she has become reacquainted with her childhood love of writing spooky stories, except this time with pictures instead of words.
While largely self taught, Annie credits online classes for most of her art education and says that she makes a point of learning something new with every painting.
Although a self-described recluse and extreme introvert, Annie has exhibited throughout the Southwestern United States at art shows, comic conventions, and book festivals. In between these public sightings, she is rumored to live with her husband and a clowder of cats in the suburbs of Phoenix, Arizona.
