"My studio is an idea factory and a constant experiment in-flux. A love story of color informs my process and rests in the intuitive nature of "problem solving". I work on several paintings at a time leaving them like post-it notes to return to at a later time."
Angela Simeone is a Nashville-based painter whose expressive work is focused on color-theory and their interplay within her work which carries both an immediacy and physicality. Her instinctual compositions and emotive mark-making evoke both energy and stillness.
Her linework is expressive. A line that seperates. A line that frames. A line where night breaks into day. A line that is a meridian.
With over 14 years in studio, a three year in-studio apprenticeship with Nashville-artist David Guidera, college work, shows and events Angela’s work continues to evolve. Angela comes from generations of Italian makers and artists. Her childhood included living abroad which provided a wealth of experiences encouraging risk and change. With a business degree in marketing, she embraces creation within a business environment. Her career has included varied creative endeavors --from in house brand marketing work in the music industry in Nashville and an Internet start-up in San Francisco to partnering with brands such as J.Crew, Avon, Boarding for Breast Cancer, Room Seven and ChickClick. She has also started entrepreneurial ventures in apparel, wallpaper and an art consortium. Angela's work has been featured in House Beautiful, Traditional Home, Domino Magazine, HGTV Home Magazine, Better Homes & Garden, My Domaine, Home with Rue, The Tennessean, and includes television NASHVILLE and The Property Brothers.
Her work has been purchased for collections of corporations, the Sarah Cannon Cancer Clinics, hotels such as Blackberry Mountain, the Grand Hyatt, professional athletes Ben Simmons, Derek Henry, Nashville Predators and private clients.
