About Me

Carlo D'Anselmi (b.1991) lives and works in Ridgewood, Queens. He received his MFA in Painting from the New York Studio School (2015) and his BA in Fine Arts from Saint Anselm College (2013). He has shown recently at The Painting Center, Danese/Corey Gallery, Galerie Kornfeld, The Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art, and Treasure Town NYC.

“For the protagonists of Carlo D'Anselmi's paintings, the presence of water becomes a stage for drama—a place to plunge in, float, or to turn inward. The relationships between the figures are revealed through quiet gesture—reaching hands and averted gazes. With delicate gestures, D'Anselmi looks at the fragility of interpersonal relationships and, before our eyes, creates a diorama of all the different ways of being together. Whether the figures are looking for salvation in the water or whether they are experiencing pain is left open.”
