Prisoners of Matter

  • Bill Lowe Gallery 764 Miami Circle, Suite 210 Atlanta, Ga 30324 (map)

Fabio Modica is an Italian painter whose first love was Renaissance representational styles. But after a mentorship with expressionist painter Antonio Santacroce and a journey through Mexico, he developed his signature portraits. His work is characterized by a piercing, enigmatic quality achieved by a spur-of-the-moment technique that employs thickly textured paint applied with a palette knife. Modica’s paintings act as a portal through which the mesmerizing visages of entities so dreamlike they seem as deities gazing up upon us with a seductive and compelling spontaneity.
