Vincent Giarrano: ‘In my work, Realism isn’t confined to the image alone, I carry it through to the concept as well. I paint what speaks to me about real life experiences. I want my viewer to feel the true to life quality of my scenes. Another major aspect of my work is the degree of resolve that I seek. Our eyes see things in a very particular way, how they focus and what we focus on. My interest is in using those qualities to create a more believable impression’.
Vincent Giarrano’s new exhibition, titled ‘Vincent Giarrano New Paintings’, will be hosted at Susan Powell Fine Art Gallery, Madison, CT (Oct. 6 – Nov. 11, 2017).
