Dionne Canzano

Highly skilled with dry pastel, Dionne Canzano employs veils of blended colours punctuated by smaller detailed lines with pastel pencils. Her explorations express an ephemeral quality and often convey a wildness that focuses on subjects close to her heart including Elvis Presley, the Collingwood Magpies as well as various animals. Dionne Canzano (born 1970) has been a regular studio artist at Arts Project Australia since 2000, and presented her first solo exhibition ‘Dionne Canzano’ at Arts Project Australia in 2003, followed by her second solo in 2011. She has been included in numerous group exhibitions including, Melbourne Art Fair, Royal Exhibition Building, Melbourne (each year from 2004-2014), Darebin Art Show, Bundoora Homestead Art Centre, Bundoora (2013-14) and Pearls of Arts Project Australia: The Stuart Purves Collection, National touring exhibition (2007-2009). Her work is held in private collections throughout Australia.
