Dante Cannatella

New Orleans-born, Brooklyn-based Dante Cannatella creates paintings that exist in an imaginative version of reality that is derived from his own experiences, memories and dreams. His paintings grasp the tactility of paint and illusionary light to portray the figure emotively. His compositions often hinge on the proximal relations of figures, and in doing so describing relationships–between people, between workers, and between individuals or groups and their environments. His imagery is often inspired by the landscapes of South Louisiana and is driven by an intuitive, improvisational process whereby form, pattern, color, and design elements both belong to the surface of an object and take on their own narratives
