About

Abstracted painting of racing horses in subdued shades of olive and ochre by Sicilian artist Fabio Modica.;Horses II is one of a series of four original mixed media equine paintings. An apprentice to well-known Italian painters Alberto Abate and Antonio Santacroce, he was originally inspired by the classical Renaissance, occasionally drawing on Greek and Latin mythology. His versatile spirit has led him to incorporate many different styles and mediums into his later works, including watercolors, acrylics and chalks. His encounter with Santacroce marked a departure from a representational style towards a semi-abstracted texture. Modica's enduring realism was gradually dismantled by a compelling drive for sheer lines and thick smudges of color.
