Beautiful and moody print by Gio Antonello
Words from the artist:
"Painted on a small canvas, this piece is split equally into two distinct zones. One half is a smooth layer of paint gently mixed and applied with a brush of acrylic; the opposing side is generously applied with a pallet knife full of oil paint to create an almost three-dimensional texture, giving the observer the impression that it is emerging outwards to escape the canvas, in direct contrast to the opposite side, which is completely flat. Apart from painting in contrast, another of my aims was to ascertain how the light would reflect on each of the two surfaces. Having completed the piece, I confirmed that the prominent three-dimensional side did indeed reflect the light in a different way to the opposite side giving the impression of two distinct and conflicting pieces within the one painting.
The light which bounces off the bulbous oil paint creates a shadow when viewed from one angle and glare from a different angle. From some angles, even the color changes from purple to reddy pink. The two sides, although adjacent to one another could not be further apart; one side seemingly pushing out as though attempting to escape the canvas not being content with being in one place. In comparison, its neighbor lies flat, hugging the canvas threads in complete harmony. The effect is striking."
