About the Book
The artist has a deep appreciation for the tradition and culture of the past, that tends to recycle, filter and return through the suggestions of her work, with the eyes and heart of those who live militant by the art of living in the state of being contemporary.
Since her earliest appearances in group exhibitions, reviews and competitions, Cangi has immediately obtained awards and critical acclaim. Since the Nineties she exhibited in solo and group exhibitions in Italy and abroad.
To remember are the successes in Berlin, Düsseldorf and Regensburg (Germany), Atlanta (U.S.A.) and Ghent (Belgium). Some of her works are part of public and private collections. /// Dina Cangi nasce ad Arezzo, dove vive e lavora in località Chiani. Dopo il diploma di scuola superiore si dedica all’arte esercitando, con un’assidua ricerca di colori, luci, superfici e materiali, la pratica della pittura. È appassionata di antropologia e archeologia.
L’artista nutre un grande apprezzamento per la tradizione e la cultura del passato, che tende a recuperare, filtrare e restituire attraverso le suggestioni dei suoi lavori, con gli occhi e il cuore di chi vive da militante l’arte della propria contemporaneità.
Fin dalle sue prime apparizioni in mostre collettive, rassegne e concorsi, la Cangi ottiene immediati riconoscimenti di pubblico e critica. Dagli anni Novanta ha esposto con personali e collettive in Italia e all’estero.
Da ricordare i successi ottenuti a Berlino, Düsseldorf e Regensburg (Germania), Atlanta (U.S.A.) e Ghent (Belgio). Alcune delle sue opere fanno parte di collezioni pubbliche e private.
