Mixed Me­dia

Enough, a solo ex­hi­bi­tion of Carol An­thony’s art­work

Pasatiempo - - PASATIEMPO -

Carol An­thony’s paint­ings of still lifes, land­scapes, and mod­est interiors are po­etic, con­tem­pla­tive im­ages that call our at­ten­tion to the beauty of the ev­ery­day. An­thony grew up in Con­necti­cut with a twin sis­ter, and the girls be­gan draw­ing at the age of two. Her fa­ther was vice pres­i­dent of an ad­ver­tise­ment agency and a car­toon con­trib­u­tor to The New Yorker, and her mother was a singer. She lost her mother as a teenager, her fa­ther while in her twen­ties, and her sis­ter to breast can­cer in 1996 — ex­pe­ri­ences that have in­formed much of her work.

McLarry Fine Art (225 Canyon Road, 505-988-1161) opens Enough ,an ex­hibit of An­thony’s new works, on Fri­day, Dec. 18th. The ex­hi­bi­tion is shown in con­junc­tion with the release of Carol An­thony: Paint­ings, Prints, and Con­struc­tions 1975-2015, pub­lished by Ra­dius Books. The book is the first full-length sur­vey of the artist’s ca­reer and in­cludes nu­mer­ous ex­am­ples of her mono­types, works in oil crayon, and pa­pier-mâché, as well as her writ­ings. The show was co-cu­rated by An­thony and in­cludes ephemera from her home and stu­dio. An­thony signs copies of the new book dur­ing the open­ing re­cep­tion at 5 p.m. — Michael Abatemarco
