Statement by Antonio Antinori
"My art work is direct and uncomplicated. I do not spend much time thinking about interpretations, hidden meanings; like subliminal messages or high flow artistic philosophies. I paint ideas, emotions, feelings and try to present it in a generic or global context mind with craftsmanship and drama in an interesting and perhaps unusual ways.
Before painting, I draw a sketch very carefully of my artwork; planning the colors, values, and sequencing of the entire composition. No matter how complex my subject is the goal, accidents are rarely welcome, and mistakes are often irreparable. My paintings take various lengths of time to complete, but I can generally produce two per month. The completion time is a function of the works complexity. Most of my artwork contains a bit of the dramatic, which heightens the impact of the composition. As a painter I supply the mood and the viewer is invited to provide the subtext.
Finally, I believe what ultimately makes a successful painting is the painter’s ability to import his/her ideas, emotions and feelings into the artwork and to convey something to the viewer." Antonio Antinori
