Art Medium: painting, portraits
“Art critic Brian Sherwin commented on paintings created by artist Alessio Radice, stating, “The art of Alessio Radice exposes psychological wounds. In Alessio’s work, we see a range of raw emotions come into visual play – some of these portraits convey a sense of defeated innocence… while others appear to be strikingly sinister.” Sherwin added, “Alessio teases us with a psychological feast – an open-narrative that permits viewers to explore their own identity while looking upon his emotionally raw portraits.”
“Alessio Radice’s paintings captures the essence of its subjects in a turbulence of colors with minimal strokes, which are strategically placed to bring the spectator where he wants them to be. His oil paintings are precise without any doubts. We remember each paintings indefinitely. It is probably this complicity with the spectator that carves a place in our memory. He borrows from the viewer’s own experience to fill-in the blanks and keeps the door open where necessary.
A myriad of expressions come out of his work: oblivion, envy, determination, questioning, revolt, brutality, pain and lust.”
