Anthony Santomauro:“Omnipresence of Emotion”
Patrons' Gallery, October 26, 2014 - November 01, 2014
Emotions can be found everywhere!
His works are in many private collections in the United States, Canada and the US Virgin Islands. Additionally his religious works are in the collections of St. Joseph Manor, Trumbull, CT and Maryknoll Missionaries, Maryknoll, New York.
Anthony Santomauro is a realistic artist whose detailed pastels, highly technical drawings and strong yet sensitive paintings merge feelings with visual reality. He uses portraits of humans and animals to explore the variety and intensity of the human emotional experience. The observers are initially engaged by the exquisitely beautiful realistic details of each piece, but eventually are involved in an intense relationship which draws them into the domain and creativity of the artist’s mind. Whether it is beauty, rage, melancholy, malevolence or goodness, they are emerged into the world, power and emotion of each of his creations.
