Known for capturing the mysterious qualities of light on canvas to create atmosphere, mood, and narrative, artist Linda Fantuzzo debuts a new body of work in Linda Fantuzzo: Penumbra. The landscape and interior paintings and drawings in this exhibition are rendered with a quiet, abstracted simplicity. The inclusion of stairs, ladders, windows, and doors suggests an unseen yet palpable human presence. The title Penumbra, a term that means “a space of partial illumination,” references light’s transitions. In these works Fantuzzo connects the literal transitions of light to the metaphorical transitions and impermanence of the human experience.
Fantuzzo grew up in Endicott, New York and studied painting at The Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in Philadelphia. Her work has been featured in numerous exhibitions throughout her career and is represented in the collections of the Greenville County Museum of Art, the Gibbes Museum of Art, The Burroughs Chapin Art Museum and additional public, corporate and private collections throughout the U.S. She has been involved in numerous projects in the Charleston arts community and has received multiple grants and awards, including the S.C. Arts Commission visual arts fellowship in 2017.
The exhibition Linda Fantuzzo: Penumbra will be on view at: the Greenville County Museum of Art, Greenville, S.C. – September 4 to November 3, 2019 before traveling to several other venues.
