American Flag & Abstract Collection
Tuesday, Jan 26, 2021 from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM - English
Palm Beach Art, Antique and Design Showroom and The Gallery at Four India Street will be featuring renowned American Global Expressionist Artist: Giovanni DeCunto.
A unique collection of American Flag and dynamic abstracts that showcase a unique technique that he invented called “painting with light.” The powerful American Flag collection, which combines expressionistic, minimalism and pop art styles, serves as a symbol of unity and to remind us that, to move forward, we must always come together.
DeCunto’s dynamic abstracts present two different images depending on the kind of light reflected off the canvas. His unique painting with light technique produces various experiences of the same painting depending upon which light setting the piece is viewed under – whether it is natural or ultraviolet (UV light). When painting, he works in incandescent light and UV light, using a combination of acrylic paint with fluorescent paint to create different color reactions depending on the light source used to view the piece. Natural pigments will react to our natural light source, whereas fluorescent pigments absorb ultraviolet light and re-emit it at a different wavelength making the light visible and the material appear to glow.

New River Fine Art is pleased to announce Through the Looking Glass, a new collection of previously unreleased and trailblazing sculptural and two-dimensional artworks from contemporary artist, Hunt Slonem, debuting and running from January 22 - February 21, 2021 in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Continuing in his bold and brilliant investigation of the world's flora and fauna, Slonem's groundbreaking metamorphic transformation gives birth to a wonderfully refreshing realm of casted bronze, blown glass, neon, and multimedia-based au-courant artistry. "This new body of work was born out of these unexpected times," said Slonem. "Given an opportunity to create work in an entirely new methodology, what has resulted is an artistic liberation of sorts. My established lexicon of forms has taken on new life in blown glass, in bronze, and other media, all in a visual culmination that is thrilling to me artistically. This moment in time has proven to be an impetus for an ever-expanding vocabulary of new work and I'm pleased to share it with you."
The artist's impressive career spanning almost five decades now enters a new phase of evolution. Disciplined, yet explosive in his use of color, his signature gestures are vibrantly raw and wild. Slonem uses his new mediums with the same deft hand that rocketed him into the coterie of New York art world luminaries in the 1970s. "This exhibition,Through the Looking Glass, is a first for Hunt. New River Fine Art is so proud and gracious to be selected to be the premier gallery to showcase the new collection of innovative artwork. For an international artist, who is widely revered in New York and across the globe, choosing Fort Lauderdale for this coveted launch is astonishing...with this decision, he is actively acknowledging the integrity and respectability of the South Florida Art Market, and spotlighting the vibrant and strong collector base that flourishes outside of New York," says Lisa Burgess, President of New River Fine Art.
