Anna Coroneo debuts a series of abstract artworks on canvas, studies on paper and photographs in An Endless Summer curated by Anne Huntington.

Inspired by the notion of an endless summer, these works endeavor to explore nostalgic emotions of balmy seaside summer days, sultry, starry nights, sounds of laughter and lazy lounging afternoons in lush surroundings. Botanical and marine life influences the art.

Many of the paintings have an emphasis on line. Bright works in vibrant colors juxtapose the mostly black and white paintings, and heighten the contract. Repeated lines within lines within lines intrigue the viewer and engage a maze-like search into one’s imagination. The artist recalls youthful games of cloud gazing exploring the idea of fantasy within the endless summers of her native Australia.

This is Coroneo’s first solo show in NYC, beautifully translates between her two worlds of art and fashion. The art inspires her fashion collections through textile design. She studied a Parsons, The New School as well as the College of Fine Arts in Sydney before moving to NYC. Her art is celebrated and collected internationally.

The show opens in the Terminal Building known for the famed nightclub, Tunnel, on September 9 coinciding with the start of Fashion Week and closes Sunday, September 12.
