About

An abstracted portrait by Fabio Modica that was recently part of the Kosmos exhibit at the Palace of Culture in Catania, Italy. Modica specializes in contemporary semi abstracted paintings of the human form. This painting is part of the ;Prisoner of Matter series whereby the subjects depicted are all constrained within the material world, 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, In this painting, Modica has included a concrete mixture on the canvas yielding magnificent texture.

Modica's most celebrated artworks are close-in portraits of female faces. he 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..
