Anita Giancola


I work in diverse media such as acrylic or house paint on canvas and on plexi glass, digital art and graphics that are printed onto skateboards and/or longboards, video shorts, which read like poems. All of these media intermingle. For example, I will create a video and then pull stills from the video to create a skateboard graphic which I then reinvent as a painting on canvas. They all relate to one another and carry similar statements. All being, a statement of relationships. A video game graphic, a candy wrapper in a classic movie, or a fast car cruising on a slow street... all of these spark my work and lead to my process which is to reduce, exaggerate, and rearrange the object, the memory, or the motion until what remains is a bold minimal statement. A statement of the raw, emotional content and mystery of human relationships.
