Thomas Frontini | Tree by the Shore #4
Oil on Panel | 2014
Thomas Frontini (b. 1967) combines surrealist techniques of painting detailed foreground images with atmospheric backgrounds. The dreamlike imagery balances contemporary objects with historical scenes. His paintings explore magic in the mundane and draw from the trans formative power of the subconscious. Frontini’s palette and technique are directly influenced by his Italian heritage and Italian art history yet he creates a dialogue between the present and the future. His reference material is sourced from current topical issues that humans face, using metaphors to portray an intangible potential of the future.
