About

This large scale contemporary portrait painting by Fabio Modica just came from an exhibition at the Palace of Culture in Catania, Italy. It is both an imposing and beautiful painting in colors of lavender, blues, pinks, orange and yellow. Modica specializes in semi abstracted paintings of the human form. This one is titled EOS after the goddess of the dawn and she radiates with the aura of the sun. What sets Modica apart is his ability to lay down "multi-layered coats of vibrant paint spread over a tortured canvas with vigorous spatula strokes, as if he were action painting". His most celebrated artworks are close-in portraits of female faces with vivid blue eyes whose gaze hypnotizes and penetrates the viewer. Modica has a Masters in History and Preservation of Works of Art from the University of Bologna, 2011 and a Bachelors degree in Fine Art and Restoration from the Nike Academy of Fine Art in Catania. He trained as an apprentice to well-known Italian painters Alberto Abate and Antonio Santacroce, For more information about Fabio Modica and this stunning painting call Bender Gallery.
