Antonio Santin

Although Antonio Santin‘s approach is traditional, his subjects are photo based and at times evoke a digital camera rendering, which brings to his pictures a proof of the struggles with contemporary subjectivity and the challenges of defining meaning where there might only be superficiality. Santín’s paintings are sculptural, which is evident in the ways that the brushstrokes take on a three dimensional treatment, reducing the paint to graduated matter that is carved away to excavate the inner being of the subject”.
