Gallery Exhibit- ANAHI DECANIO: UNEDITED ABSTRACTIONS Reception: Friday, September 8, 5:00 – 6:30 pm Anahi DeCanio is a multi-disciplinary artist working in a variety of media, including collage and assemblage. She is also the Creative Director of ArtyZen Studios, which focuses on fine art and product design. Ms. DeCanio, born in Uruguay, started her career on Wall Street and has been painting professionally for over a decade. The artist sees “every brushstroke, color, element or scratch as symbols of the marks left behind by life events and the passage of time.” She explores this concept by applying countless strokes of paint and occasional collage elements and gilding to create intricate abstract landscapes. The alternating of opaque and transparent pigments adds to the complexity of these richly textured and luminously colored paintings. “Some of these layers are part of the story but remain hidden,” the artist says, “some subtly reveal themselves in small glimpses.” Ms. DeCanio is the founder and curator of the eco-friendly art and design show eARThHamptons, held annually on the East End. She is an active participant and volunteer in several charities and art organizations. Her work has been published widely and can be seen in several TV and motion picture productions. She has won numerous awards in national juried competitions and has participated in group and solo exhibits in Long Island, Manhattan, Brooklyn and Washington D.C. The artist is also a licensed agent with Douglas Elliman. Lulie Morrisey and Cristina Kepner are chairs of this exhibit, which will be on display from September 1-30.
