CARLO AMANTEA – MEET THE ARTIST
MEET THE ARTIST Carlo Amantea from 2 pm – 5 pm.
“The discipline of painting can give us deeper understanding of our existence. Such knowledge is not available in any other way. For this very reason genuine artists still paint, since the challenge is great and worth a life-long quest. Carlo Amantea is an artist whose forms and colour discover something we have not yet seen – they are very much his own inventions. He absorbs the visual art wisdom of the last fifty years without imitating it; he paints on a high level, with his own voice. Without his ambition and without his long development – maturation, he would have achieved only a local standing.”
Excerpt from essay ‘The Art of CARLO AMANTEA’ by Joseph Drapell, 2023
