For the last few months I've been working on an enormous painting, "The Kiss of Consecration" and building its frame. This weekend I finally got to see it all together and on a gallery wall for the first time with the opening of ÀNI Art Academies Capturing Realism Caribbean 2023!
This project has been a wonderful challenge for me, it's the largest painting I've made and I've hand-built this frame specifically as a companion to this painting, bringing the two together a single unified piece. It was so rewarding to see it in a gallery. Something I didn't expect, because of the size and the framing of the piece it almost looks like a doorway that you could walk through when you see it in person.
This painting will be painting will be hanging in Arte San Ramón Galleria for the rest of the month, then I'm hoping to be able to show it the US. Stay tuned for more pictures and videos from the exhibition!
Congratulations to the ÀNI Art Academies Dominicana apprentices and graduates for a terrific opening of Capturing Realism Caribbean 2023! I'm very proud of the hard work of all involved. This is the first ÀNI exhibition in the Caribbean and took place in the beautiful Arte San Ramón gallery. We were fortunate enough to have a visit with ÀNI's new president, Jonathan Reutenauer, coincide with the exhibition as well! There are plenty more pictures and videos on the way later this week! Congrats again to the excellent artist who participated in this exhibition!
