Featured Artist at the e.Gallery: Lani Kennefick


Portrait

Featured Artist at the e.Gallery this week is a 21st Century artist, Lani Kennefick [American, 1961- ] Link: http://fineart.elib.com/fineart.php?dir=Alphabetical/Kennefick_Lani

Lani (rhymes with rainy) Kennefick February 14, 1961–

After graduating from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1983, Lani Kennefick embarked on the much romanticized life of an artist on the lower east side of Manhattan during the 1980’s. It was a hectic and vibrant time when, along side her painting practice, she began what was to become a life long study of the occult. Years later, after raising her daughter as a single parent, she went back to NY to receive her Masters Degree in painting. It was during this time she began painting the “Small Animal” series. Inspired visually by Asian art, the subject matter remained in the realm of the occult, and is especially rooted in Anthroposophy.

In light of her Anthroposphical studies and her experience in graduate school, Lani is creating a curriculum exploring the role of Spirit in art, with the hope of some day sharing it with other artists. Currently living and working in Brooklyn, NY she is involved in the NYC branch of the Anthroposphical Society, and is scheduled to show in the society’s Centerpoint Gallery in September of 2014. More information and images are available at lanikennefick.com.
Paintings and Giclee prints are for sale on the website as well.

Featured Artist at the e.Gallery: Carlo Carrà


Portrait

Featured Artist at the e.Gallery this week is a 20th Century artist of the Futurist movement, Carlo Carrà [Italian, 1891-1966] Link: http://fineart.elib.com/fineart.php?dir=Alphabetical/Carra_Carlo

Carrà was born in Piedmont and followed in his father’s footsteps as a decorator and muralist, moving to Milan in 1895, where he later met Boccioni at the Brera Academy. Carrà experimented with Divisionism, but like Boccioni was dissatisfied with current trends in painting. Together with Boccioni and Russolo he drafted the Manifesto of the Futurist Painters and the Technical Manifesto of Futurist Painting (both 1910), issuing his own manifesto The Painting of Sounds, Noises and Smells in 1913. He also developed a lifelong friendship with Soffici, traveling with him to Paris in 1914, where he was inspired to experiment with Cubism and primitivism. He continued to back the Futurist campaign, however, supporting Italy’s participation in the First World War. During the war years he developed a strong interest in Italy’s artistic past, particularly the work of Giotto and Paolo Uccello. With de Chirico he formed the short-lived Scuola metafisica in 1917, creating works depicting enigmatic interiors and city squares. These prepared the way for the consciously naïve figurative style he evolved after his break with de Chirico, and throughout the 1920s he adopted a naturalistic approach that remained unchanged until his death.

Featured Artist at the e.Gallery: Akseli Valdemar Gallen-Kallela


Portrait

Featured Artist at the e.Gallery this week is a 20th Century artist of the Symbolist movement, Akseli Valdemar Gallen-Kallela [Finnish, 1865-1931] Link: http://fineart.elib.com/fineart.php?dir=Alphabetical/Gallen-Kallela_Akseli_Valdemar

Akseli Gallen-Kallela (1865–1931), was a Finnish painter, graphic artist, designer, and architect, his country’s most famous artist and a major figure in the Art Nouveau and Symbolist movements. He was born in Pori and studied in Helsinki and then in Paris (1884–9, notably at the Académie Julian). In 1894 he settled at Ruovesi in central Finland, where he designed his own home and studio (1894–5) in a romantic vernacular style, together with its furnishings. He traveled widely, however, and was well-known outside his own country, particularly in Germany (he had a joint exhibition with Munch in Berlin in 1895 and exhibited with Die Brücke in Dresden in 1910). In 1911–13 he built a new home and studio for himself at Tarvaspää near Helsinki (now a museum dedicated to him). Gallen-Kallela was deeply patriotic (he volunteered to fight in the War of Independence against Russia in 1918, even though he was in his 50s) and he was inspired mainly by the landscape and folklore of his country, above all by the Finnish national epic Kalevala (‘Land of Heroes’).
