AboutLuciano Ventrone | Nudes
07 Dec - 04 Jan 2014
Ventrone is often categorized as a âhyper-realist'. This implies that his work is somehow related to photography. As anyone who has looked at his paintings carefully will know, this is not the case. Far from offering us the somewhat flattened version of physical forms typical of the monocular vision of the camera, his paintings have an almost overwhelming solidity and physical presence, to the point where the nearest shapes seem ready to break through the front plane of the canvas.
