Anna Contes (Contemporary)

Anna Contes states "As a painter, I seek to capture the sensation of color and the structure of light energy. Objects reflect and radiate a light source of their own - transparent yet solidly structured planes of color imbued with light. Nature releases me only after her sensuality is expressed. An iconic symbolism emerges that satisfies me until my next encounter."

She continues "A New Yorker by birth, as a teenager, I escaped to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, with my bagged lunch, every Saturday morning for several months of each high school year. At sixteen, I enjoyed a painting scholarship from the American Art School, in NYC, then went on to receive a B.F.A. from Pratt Institute, in Brooklyn, NY, and an M.S. at SUNY New Paltz. At the Edwin MacDowell Art Colony, in Peterborough, NH, I was awarded a summer painting fellowship."
