For Anne Russinof painting is a foray into liquid territory, with depths, shallows, and overlapping orders. She attempts to catch the process of change in some of its “endless forms,” invoking Darwin and the way in which complex structures come from simple beginnings. The painting is a snapshot of that moment in which the flux of jumbling and crowded shapes has been temporarily arrested. Nature’s accretions and interruptions are here contained by the organizing principle that is the canvas edge.

Anne Russinof is a graduate of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and received an MFA from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY. She has been a resident at the Yaddo and Millay Art Colonies and is currently a member of The Painting Center.
