Antonio's major Series

All artworks, except the newest Series "Gravity", are done in "Structurism", the signature style of Antonio.
"Structurism" is a term for artworks that are done in oil colors and that consist of various thick structures that are sharply cut by other structures, some of which are up to several inches thick.

Gravity

The world has become a more tolerant place in the last few decades thanks to new technologies, ways of communication and vast possibilities for everyone to achieve dreams. Despite this fact, more people than ever are starving, nationalistic movements or religious thoughts of superiority keep popping up and leaders use them to their advantage, to exploit their people and fight wars. We keep forgetting that we are all more alike than different! Highly developed human beings. 

 

My „Gravity“ paintings are a symbol of peace for everyone to see that we are the same.

 

I use gravity to co-create them, to demonstrate that even though we might look different, we might live in different areas and have different believes or just a different sex, we are all the same species. Gravity is slightly different at various places even though on the same world, our blue planet. We also are slightly different, each and every one of us – but just like gravity we are more alike than different.

 

I will paint those artworks all over the world to demonstrate exactly this. I will be inspired by local variations and create a variety of artworks but always co-created with gravity.

 

I hope those "Gravity" artworks will become peacemakers.

 

Gravity India

 

Gravity Artworks created during the Art Residency at "Art><Junction" Udaipur, India from February 14 to March 30 2015. 

All artworks were inspired by local traditions and colors. 

Some are painted over photographs taken by Antonio in the first few weeks after arrival. 

 

AW - 自然·命脉

A combination of Expressionism, Action painting and sharply cut structures. A great example of "Structurism", the signature style of Antonio. An average of 60 oil color tubes per square meter have been used. All artworks are on Canvas, under-laid with massive wood for protection purposes. Those artworks are almost sculptures.

They might give you a hint to a 4th dimension…Try to reduce our world to only 2 dimensions and imagine your own third dimension and you will have a painting in “Structurism” of this series. They are not created as three dimensional works on two dimensions like from a gothic master but show a two dimensional shape in 3 dimensions, thus creating a natural, theoretically impossible depth
