Antonio’s daring approach to watercolor defies old-fashioned expectations of the thin and airy medium. He applies watercolor in a thick and juicy manner, giving his subjects a startling boldness. His draftsmanship, attention to detail, and unusual perspectives are greatly admired. But, say experts, it is the poetic, moody, and textural qualities of his paintings and the emotions that they evoke that make his artistry so memorable.
Exhibiting for the first time original small paintings (9”x12”), which were the creative spark for his much larger (40” x 60”) award-winning bridge paintings, this show runs through April 14, 2013.
