Cascade II

Antonio Molinari's avatar Antonio Molinari

Antonio applies this theory directly to his methodology, and literally pours his paint onto his canvas in a technique called “paint pouring”. He controls the direction of the paint to create the translucent colors in multicolored and monochromatic palettes that characterize his works. The vibrant colors and shadowed textures that inspired him in his youth are expressed across the canvas, adding a positive and uplifting energy to his work. And while his use of color is undeniably exciting, it is still soft on its execution; the moment he creates is bold and spontaneous while simultaneously gentle, ethereal. The translucent colors overlap and intertwine, like veils suspended without gravity. Are we looking at a skirt made of organza or fine silk as it comes undone? Or is it a flower opening up ¬to us in the same provocation as Georgia O’Keefe suggested? Regardless of interpretation, the gentleness of these colored veils invites us into an intimate moment.
