New Paintings and Drawings by Vincent Arcilesi

Vincent Arcilesi, Vesuvius 2014, Oil on canvas, 16x20 

 

Reception: Saturday, November 14, 2015 - Show Dates: Nov. 14 – Dec. 13, 2015

 

Arcilesi | Homberg Fine Art is pleased to present new work by Vincent Arcilesi. The show continues the artist’s in-depth, on-site study of the arts and culture of Greece and its environs with 12 paintings that explore the relationship between the past and the present. Rounding out the show are 5 drawings fittingly named for Greek deities. All of the paintings are oil on canvas; the drawings, which are 24” x 18,” are in conte crayon and pastel on paper.

The largest painting in the show, “Aphrodite, Eros, and Attendants” (91 x 78”) depicts what appears to be a group of dancers rehearsing outdoors in a verdant valley overlooked by the Acropolis and the Parthenon, (possibly the most awesome rehearsal space ever!) Another large painting (68 x 78”) that is closer to home, is ”Dancers in Central Park” with eleven nude bi-racial figures gathered near the Bethesda Fountain.

In this show are 12 small paintings. It’s difficult to pick a favorite because each is a little gem with a special quality of its own. “The Bay of Naples” is lovely; but so is “Neapolitan Love Song.” Also Santorini I and ll, and the Acropolis and Vesuvius.  

Arcilesi has exhibited extensively since 1966 in many New York exhibitions, as well as in a number of important museum shows, including the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Verona, Italy, the Brooklyn Museum, the Butler Institute of American Art (Youngstown, Ohio), the Art Institute of Chicago, the San Francisco Museum of Art, and the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington, DC. His work is included in a number of books and other publications and he is represented in numerous collections both public and private, including the Hirshhorn Museum, Washington, DC. He is a professor at FIT, where he teaches life drawing and painting.
