Artist Bio: Angela Simione is a multi-disciplinary artist working in San Francisco, CA. She received her BFA in Painting and Drawing with High Distinction from California College of the Arts in 2008. Her work is held in both private and corporate collections, most recently The Microsoft Art Collection.
Her creative work explores the nature of loss by examining the act of redaction and erasure as both fact and metaphor. She creates her own 'redacted documents' as a way to explore events of loss as a major component in identity construction. Her projects focus on presenting the experience of loss as a site of new hope where understanding and compassion become possible.
