The photographer Robert Zuckerman about Antonio Veronese:

Antonio Veronese’s art is dizzying and rich with feeling. To me his paintings and photographs fly free from the soul, always giving honor and love to your subjects. Thank you, Veronese, for warming my heart. As Rilke: “The inner- what is it if not intensified sky, hurled through with birds and deep with the winds of homecoming ”. Thank you, I am humbled. -

Veronese peint des visages. Ses portraits ne relèvent pas de l’apparence, du mondain, de l’avantageux. Ils ne cherchent pas à plaire ou à faire bonne figure, aucun ne refrène un sourire. Ils semblent réclamer de nous une fraternité perdue, que nous ne pouvons leur donner. Et soudain, nous nous reconnaissons, chacun de nous prisonnier de soi-même.  Ces visages sont les nôtres: sous le pinceau de Veronese, nous sommes tous Dorian Gray  -Antoine Arsan, écrivain. *Auteur de Rien de trop · Eloge du haïku (Gallimard, 2017).

Veronese paints faces. His portraits do not belong to the appearance, the worldly, the advantageous. They do not seek to please or to look good, none restrain a smile. They seem to claim from us a lost fraternity that we can not give them. And suddenly, we recognize each other, each of us prisoner of ourselves. These faces are ours: under the brush of Veronese, we are all Dorian Gray - Antoine Arsan, writer. * Author of Rien de trop · Praise of haiku (Gallimard, 2017).

« Painting marked by sensitiveness and delicacy. Something personal, a touch of spontaneity of the faces. Unique and also caught in the process wanted by the artist of repetition. One for all and all together» Sophie Attar – Le Figaro -(Cahier Culture).

« Des tableaux marqués par la souplesse et la sensibilité. Quelque chose de personnel, une touche de spontanéité des visages. Uniques et pris aussi dans les processus voulu par l’artiste de la répétition. Un pour tous et tous ensemble…» Sophie Attar – Le Figaro- (cahier Culture).

« Telas marcadas pela delicadeza e sensibilidade. Algo de pessoal, com um toque de espontaneidade dos rostos. Únicos, ainda que dentro do processo de repetição buscado pelo artista . Um para todos e todos juntos… » Sophie Attar – O Figaro (Caderno Cultura).

Le magicien des Visages

« Faces cabossées taillées à la serpe, aux regards intenses qui vous happent et ne vous lâchent plus. Visages de facture expressionniste qui disent la souffrance mais aussi l’espoir, la vie dans toute sa violence et sa beauté. La figure humaine hante la peinture d’Antonio Veronese. Motif obsessionnel qu’il déploie d’un tableau à l’autre…”le visage est inépuisable, apprécie l’artiste, j’ai ouvert la boîte de Pandore”. La palette du peintre se fait tendre avec des tons pastel et doux, ou plus criarde quand le rouge et le jaune explosent sur la toile. Veronese a longtemps travaillé aux côtés d’enfants emprisonnés. Il en a gardé une capacité rare de saisir l’humain! » Christine Monin -La Vie Magazine-Paris

Antonio Veronese’s interview to Time Out Magazine (2014)#antonioveronese #arts #arte

.   P1020904 (1)-1#antonioveronese

You seem fascinated with drawing people’s faces. Can you explain why you find this subject matter so interesting?
If you look closely, I am not exactly painting human faces but actually human feelings. Everything can be captured from a pair of eyes. This magical and complex universe of human feelings: love, fear, hope, frustration, hunger, anger, solitude – everything is imprinted in just a pair of eyes. Could I have a better subject?

There’s often a haunting intensity to your paintings – is that something you recognise?
It is similar to music, Gustav Mahler’s music [Austrian classical composer] makes some cry and others dance and I believe art is the same. We each have our own feelings and art helps these feelings to breathe.

How do you decide who to paint?
I do not decide; it’s always the painting itself that decides. In classical painting the artist has a project that he tries to accomplish. Modern art allows the painter to experiment. I call it ‘jazzing’, in the sense of jazz music. We are totally free and we can improvise – like a jam session. I would say if classical painting is like Mozart, then modern painting is [jazz legend] Charlie Parker.

How did your work teaching young prisoners in Rio de Janeiro affect how you saw people’s faces?
It deeply touched me; for many years I’ve painted in reaction to the experience. In 1999, before the government of President Lula, we had about 600 minors assassinated every year in Rio. Boys belonging to the same social class as those I was working with inside prisons. Suddenly, I was invited to do an exhibition at the Brazilian National Museum of Fine Arts. So I decided to draw one single face representing each one of those boys who had been killed that year, in order to give every dead boy the right to a virtual image of his face. That happened 14 years ago now, but I keep trying. Modesto Lanzone from the San Francisco Modern Art Museum told me that my paintings are a portrait of the complexity of today’s world. Maybe he is right.

You are known for highlighting violence against children. Is this something you would like people to think about when they see your paintings?
My work is a form of denunciation, not only of violence against children, but also of violence itself, of humans against nature and animals. Each one of us is a delicate organism, sophisticated and unique. Maybe painting is an unconscious form I’ve found to protest against the deep and ancient violence of men.

You believe that art can be used to help rehabilitate people. Is there a point where people suffer too much to be rehabilitated in your opinion?
Even when someone is about to die of thirst, a single drop of water can contribute some comfort, some relief. Art only consoles.

Do you experiment with different painting styles?
Every day I try different techniques or processes, different resources, and try to take some risks – I often go through a lot of canvas.  But when I escape the traps of conventionality and accomplish something I feel at peace.

Do you believe that art can transcend boundaries – as with the name of the exhibition?
Of course, because art touches us as humans, no matter what country, race or religion and that’s the reason I proudly decided to visit Dubai.

What other projects – artistic or not – do you have in the pipeline during 2014?
I have an exhibition planned at Bahia in Brazil and one in Paris. Also I may perhaps even return to Dubai. The UAE is a country that certainly makes my imagination fly.

The lowdown .Exhibition: ‘Art With No Boundaries’ at Art Couture, Al Badia Golf Club, InterContinental, Dubai Festival City (04 601 0101).
