WORLDS OF LIGHT

One of the main signatures in Robert Venosa's art is the intense light

that infuses his canvases.

 

Forever searching for this light, he explored various techniques to express it with a unique intensity. The old 'Misch Technique'- formulated by the 'Brothers van Eyck' in the mid-15th century - would finally prove to be an ideal tool. It is a complex system of underpainting in white tempera and coloring with transparent oil glazes, resulting in minutely detailed paintings with maximum transparency and brilliance of color.

By adapting and 'modernizing' this technique to his creative needs, Venosa was able to achieve the most striking effects of light emerging from his paintings, being reflected out and back to the viewer.
