Anne Russinof lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. Originally from Chicago, she is a graduate of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and received an MFA from Pratt Institute. Printmaking was an early focus for Russinof, who is now primarily an oil painter with a studio in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. Works on paper frequently accompany the paintings, in suites that explore related avenues of thought in washy mediums such as ink and casein. All of Russinof’s work is tied together by a focus on gestural line as expressed in layers of color, an apt description of the recent suite of etched monotypes printed at VanDeb.
Russinof has been a resident at the Yaddo and Millay Art Colonies, exhibits primarily in the New York area, and is a member of American Abstract Artists. Supporting herself as a designer for print and web, she also maintains a blog called Gallery Travels that features mostly abstract painting shown in NYC.
