Welancora presents EnSamblage, new works by Audrey Frank Anastasi. This is Anastasi’s first solo exhibition at Welancora.

As a natural progression of Audrey’s older drawings and paintings from life, this new iteration of charcoal and pastel portraits of women employ overlaid pieces of torn newspaper, magazines, and previous drawings to create complex and emotionally intense figures. Within some of these portraits there are ripped road maps, providing equal presence to the figures each with their own level of dimensionality. The maps serve to pose questions, such as, “Where am I?, Where does this road lead”? Offering answers, “I am central to the narrative. I constructed the environment around me”.

Audrey Anastasi is a feminist artist. Her practice is rooted in painting other women, the human face, and figure through direct observation. Through this technique, Anastasi examines perception and the construction of self-image. The title of the exhibition refers to both a musical ensemble of parts, and a visual assemblage of elements.

Audrey was born in Baltimore, Maryland. She earned a Master’s Degree in Fine Arts from Pratt Institute, and taught figure drawing, portfolio development, and anatomy for artists at Parsons School of Design for approximately 10 years. Audrey has been featured in Smart Money Magazine, the Lenny Lopate Show (aka: New York and Company) on National Public Radio, the New York Times, New York Daily News, amNY, Pratt Folio, Jewish Week, the arts & entertainment supplements of the Brooklyn Daily Eagle, the Brooklyn Fine Arts magazine, OntheIssuesMagazine.com and the New York Observer. Audrey lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
