Julia Contacessi Art

JULIA CONTACESSI (USA)

In 2000, Julia Contacessi earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the Pratt Institute in New York City. Over the years, her eye for composition coupled with her love of painting, design and photography has earned Contacessi numerous awards in such publications as Photographer's Forum and Creativity along with inclusion into the Robert B. Haas Family Arts Library Special Collections (ALSC) in New Haven, Connecticut. Julia never strayed far from texture, paint and the mixing and layering of mediums, which are important components to her work. Her most recent abstracts focus on deconstructing painted color palette studies through isolated images and then rebuilding those studies with new form and composition. She lives in Norwalk, Connecticut, with her husband and son. She spends most weekends tackling new projects and getting into all sorts of adventures with her little guy, Neo. She loves painting and photography, the occasional five-mile run and feisty discussions across the family dinner table on Sunday evenings.
