Antoinette Wysocki uses mixed media to create abstract paintings that indulge in materials and focus on the expressive process itself. Balanced with details of organic imagery, evocative symbols and text, to address overall subjective translation and perception while addressing impediments of memory association.
Antoinette Wysocki’s paint features an innate engagement with process, fluidly integrating acrylic, ink, charcoal, pencil, gauche and watercolor. The result evokes fantasy and dream. Her work uses complex spatial and geometric tension in layers, suggesting allegory and the abstract simultaneously.
A native of Washington, D.C, she holds a BFA from San Francisco Art Institute, served as Artist in Residence in Sonoma California in 2020 and Santa Fe in 2000. She devoted her early career teaching in special education at the high school level, including with at-risk youth. She also spent 20 years eclectically in business, including fashion industry, startups and marketing around product branding and lifestyle.
Awarded a Santa Fe Artist Institute grant, and nominated as Best Emerging Artist by GLADD in 2009, she exhibits her paint internationally including New York, London, Hong Kong, Dubai and Los Angeles. Her work is in private collections including: Mandarin Oriental and the former Corcoran Gallery of Art, now part of the Smithsonian Institution’s National Gallery of Art collection. She has appeared in may publications and her work has been projected in Times Square NYC and the SFAI Tower in San Francisco, California. She collaborates and brands actively, with work featured on clothes, a wine label, an album cover, and designer handbags.
Antoinette lives in New York with her husband and two sons.
Antoinette is inspired by all the genres of the arts. One day she can be looking at work by Rauschenberg while listening to Marvin Gaye and reading The Goldfinch and the next day lost In Jenny Saville, humming PJ Harvey and reading Dr. Seuss.
