DESCRIPTION

Anita Kunz has been widely published for over three decades on an international platform. Kunz’s paintings have been concerned with political systems, social justice and the human relationship to nature.

Her newer body of work concerns the animal kingdom and and how we relate to and live within it.

“The Bestiary” is a special curated exhibition showcasing a comprehensive exploration of beasts both found in rural and city locations and those fantastical mythical creatures that are only discovered in the land of Kunz.

She believes that since we share an enormous amount of genetic material with other creatures and by comparing and contrasting, we can begin to understand our very nature.

Anita is highly collected in many institutions these include the permanent collections of the Museum of Contemporary Art, Rome; Norman Rockwell Museum and showcased in several art fairs across the UK and more.  She has received the Order of Canada, her country’s highest civilian honour and was the first Canadian and the first woman to have a show of her work at the Library of Congress in Washington.

She has also recently received the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal of Honour.


Anita Kunz,  da oltre tre decenni, è conosciuta a livello internazionale.

I dipinti della Kunz trattano i sistemi politici, la giustizia sociale e il rapporto dell’uomo con la natura.

Il suo nuovo lavoro racconta il regno animale e come noi ci relazioniamo e viviamo all’interno di esso.

“The Bestiary” è una speciale mostra che ci presenta un’esplorazione completa di “bestie”, trovate  in aree rurali e cittadine, quelle creature mitiche e fantastiche che vengono scoperte solo nel paese della Kunz.

Lei crede che poiché condividiamo una quantità enorme di materiale genetico con le altre creature, confrontandoci e contrastandoci con loro, possiamo cominciare a capire la nostra stessa natura.

Anita è esposta in numerose sedi  istituzionali tra cui il Museo di Arte Contemporanea a Roma, il Norman Rockwell Museum in USA ed è presente in molte gallerie d’arte del Regno Unito.

Ha ricevuto l’Order of Canada, la più alta onorificenza civile del suo paese ed è stata la prima canadese e la prima donna ad avere una mostra personale presso la Biblioteca del Congresso a Washington.

Ha inoltre recentemente ricevuto dalla Regina il Diamond Jubilee Medal of Honour.
