Described as Rembrandt-like and reminiscent of Magritte, contemporary artist Carol Anthony's paintings and monotypes are on view at the Frye Art Museum in her first Seattle showing from April 12 through May 30. In the exhibition A Place of Inner Stillness, her intimate works depicting isolated buildings, sparse landscapes, and single pieces of fruit insert new life into simple subject matter.
Her swollen apples and pears brim with lush energy and her quiet landscapes pay homage to ordinary vistas. The primary media are oil-crayon and enamel on gessoed Masonite panel and the monotype. The rest, Anthony says, is "magic and a secret." Through her skillful utilization of materials an atmospheric quality is created that evokes a sense of mystery.
Anthony's paintings and monotypes are represented in the permanent collections of the Smithsonian Institution, the Carnegie Institute, and the Hirschhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, among others. In the past she has collaborated with her identical twin sister, Elaine, who is also an artist. She earned her bachelor's degree in art at the Rhode Island School of Design, and has lived and worked in Connecticut, Washington state, and most recently, Santa Fe, New Mexico.
