Tina Cantelmi Artist Statement
My paintings explore optimistic spaces, subjects and themes, bringing layers of light, fields of color, and often, a color-charged palette to imaginative compositions to either rev or calm the senses. I prefer to work in a larger format as a means to maximize the effect. My work is about allowing the viewer to find and choose their own preferences which can be oddly familiar, quirky and even spiritual. I am thankful to note that my paintings are in private and corporate collections from Boston to Brooklyn, Kentucky, Manhattan, Pennsylvania, Seattle, Texas and Florida.
