Lani (rhymes with
rainy) Kennefick February 14, 1961–
from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1983, Lani Kennefick
embarked on the much romanticized life of an artist on the lower east
side of Manhattan during the 1980’s. It was a hectic and
vibrant time when, along side her painting practice, she began what
was to become a life long study of the occult. Years later, after
raising her daughter as a single parent, she went back to NY to
receive her Masters Degree in painting. It was during this time she
began painting the “Small Animal” series. Inspired
visually by Asian art, the subject matter remained in the realm of
the occult, and is especially rooted in Anthroposophy.
In light of her
Anthroposphical studies and her experience in graduate school, Lani
is creating a curriculum exploring the role of Spirit in art,
with the hope of some day sharing it with other artists.
Currently living and working in Brooklyn, NY she is involved in the NYC
branch of the Anthroposphical Society, and is scheduled to show in the
society's Centerpoint Gallery in September of 2014. More information
