(Image above: Drifting, Anna Cincaide, Eisenhauer Gallery)
The alluring work of painter (and Cary Grant aficionado) Anna Kinkaide speaks to the breadth of The Eisenhauer Gallery. The artist’s experience in interior design and fascination with old Hollywood result in paintings that mingle vintage couture with experimental portraiture. Kinkaide opts for anonymity for her subjects, allowing the viewer to share a deeper connection with the work.
