About

This large scale abstracted portrait by Fabio Modica just came from a museum exhibition in Cantania, Italy. It is a powerful and enigmatic painting in bold deep blue colors. Modica specializes in semi abstracted paintings of the human form. This one is titled Selene after the goddess of the moon. 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 the painter were action painting". His most celebrated artworks are close-in portraits of female faces with eyes the blue color of robin's eggs 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 striking painting call Bender Gallery.
