Provenance / History  
Story / Additional InfoThe legacy of surrealism in Latin American Art is redefined in the energetic lines and the vibrant concepts of Antonio Carreno, an artist born in the Dominican Republic. the images in his mixed media paintings and pastels are inspired by cherished memories of his early life in the islands, where he experienced the simplicity and joy of the natural world. Although the spontaneous gestures in Carreno's work recall the whimsical symbols of Miro or the floating figures of Chagall, Carreno structures his paintings meticulously with an emphasis on the detail and symmetry. with graceful ease, fragments of objects impressions assemble and maneuver across the surface of each, fluctuating from fantasy to illusion. The impasto ground is an arena for the action of diagrammatic lines, which whirl and twist playfully across the canvas, delineating and organizing the interactive images. Carreno shapes the pliant surface with an assortment of tools to capture a delicate sweep of light and shadow. Then he brushes layers of paint in thick strokes and thin washes, building on accessible dimensional surface prime to integrate his imagery. The artist is lured by the inherent harmony of the organic colors of the earth and enriches the subtlety of his mute palette with the calligraphy of transparent veils of color. Carreno captures both the nuance and vitality of life in his works, allowing viewers to contemplate a powerful aesthetic vision, in which lingers subconsciously beyond each elusive moment.

Antonio Carreno

Art Brokerage: Antonio Carreno Dominican Republic Artist: Born in the Dominican Republic, Carreño attended the National School of Fine Art in its capital of Santo Domingo. In the 1980s, he immigrated to the United States, furthering his studies at the Art Students’ League in New York. Carreño’s mixed media paintings and works on paper continue the legacy of Surrealism in Latin American art, in the manner of Wilfredo Lam, Roberto Matta, and Rufino Tamayo, and also evoke European masters such as Joan Miró, Paul Klee, and Piet Mondrian. However, Carreño’s marks—his confidently executed brushstrokes, scratches, and feather dustings—are uniquely his own, just like a signature. Carreño candidly invites us to inspect his internal world that is full of lyricism, spirituality, playfulness, and expressiveness. He leaves the meaning of his symbols, however, up to each viewer’s individual imagination. Listings wanted.
