Joan Criscione: Paintings from the Heart
NEW YORK, NY – Chelsea’s Agora Gallery will feature the original work of Joan Criscione in Breaking with Realism. The exhibition opens September 2, 2017 and runs through September 22, 2017 with an opening reception on Thursday, September 7 from 6-8 pm.
The abstract expressionist paintings of American artist Joan Criscione often elicit an immediate emotive response in the viewer. Characterized by loose forms, muted colors, and broad brushstrokes, Criscione’s paintings are more about reaching and communing with the viewer than any representational composition. Figurative elements do wind their way onto the canvas, but they are secondary to the depth of experiential emotion and human understanding conveyed in each piece.
Criscione comes from an expansive artistic background in fashion, and she holds a great love and passion for music and dance. These elements can be traced within her work, where there is a sense of dynamism, rhythm, and movement as the viewers’ eye moves from one form to the next. For Criscione, painting represents her greatest offering to the world. As she explains, “I feel I have much to give to the world by painting what is in my heart.”
Joan Criscione is the founder and former owner of an internationally renowned women’s clothing company, Criscione Designs. She currently lives and works in Boca Raton, Florida.
