Tommaso Arscone’s Works of Women’s Visages Convey Power and Beauty in The Odyssey Within at Agora Gallery

Chelsea’s Agora Gallery announced its annual exhibition of fine art by Greek and Italian artists is scheduled to run from December 15, 2009 through January 5, 2010, featuring work from Tommaso Arscone.

As depicted by Tommaso Arscone, the female face is intriguingly complex, suggestive of attitude and personality. Above all, however, Arscone’s paintings of women’s visages convey the power of a beauty born from order and harmony. Working generally with oil on canvas, he renders his subjects’ features flawlessly in almost photographic detail, yet the result ultimately bears the traces of Pop Art, sharing the fascination with countenance displayed by masters such as Warhol and Lichtenstein. Likewise, Arscone’s work relies on a combination of bright and dark color—sometimes suffusing the entire composition, and at other times used to highlight elements such as piercing eyes or a cherry-red mouth, all emphasized by attention to light and shadow. These techniques create striking portraits that, while conveying a specific emotion, leave room for the viewer’s thoughts, for him or her to interject possible reasons for the given woman’s mood. Thus Arscone’s art is, in the tradition of Pop Art, open and accessible to all.

Tommaso Arscone is Italian by birth, originally from Genoa. His works have been exhibited throughout his native country and in the United States.
The Odyssey Within is a captivating survey of modern-day artists from Greece and Italy. The artistic conceptions vary dramatically while retaining a distinctive European character attentive to the human condition. Works of both quiet introspection and visual bravado are included, offering a unique look into the contemporary art coming from these two prominent Mediterranean locales.
