Studio Visit: Anne Russinof

On Tuesday I was lucky to be invited to the Brooklyn studio of painter Anne Russinof.
I had a great time talking painting, art history, and literature with Anne and her friend, painter, Tony Saunders.  Below are images of Russinof's work, a few studio views, and a statement from the artist's website.

"In my abstract imagery of the past few years I have layered repeating circles to create a kind of grid or lattice. Recently these circular shapes have loosened up to be more gestural, showing a more obvious open grid work. I have always been interested in combining an expressionist tendency with a relatively minimalist appreciation of structure. Originally from Chicago, I was attracted to New York in part because of the legacy of abstract expressionism. My recent paintings join my interest in line and structure with a more lush, wet-on-wet painting technique."

What a great way to see your other works and your studio. I can see the circles are moving within the canvas.
