CARLO AMANTEA AND HENRY SAXE – MEET THE ARTISTS
“‘Just as ALL emotions need to be savoured and not suppressed, the manner in which I apply paint to canvas is an extension and replication of this very concept. Painting is a mirror image of my truest, most emotional self. The ebb and flow, the push and pull and the tug and release of artistic expression is my constant inspiration and motivation. My art does not hold back, contain, appease or soothe. My extensive journey is all about flow, joy, deep rooted curiosity and simply put, awe of raw emotion. Challenging the status quo is important to me. This perpetually results in my best work.”
Carlo Amantea, 2022
“What makes art intriguing is not what is easily revealed, but the question marks that remain. So it is with our world: from our senses, we attempt to construct, to build meaning, from our surroundings.”
Henry Saxe is a Canadian artist of an international repute. He represented Canada at the 1978 Venice Biennale; and his work is represented in virtually all the major public museum and gallery collections in Canada.
