Piece description from the artist
From the Circles series,
John Gentile was born and raised in Italy where he worked as a commercial artist. He returned to painting full-time in 1972 and is represented in numerous private collections in North and South America, as well as Europe.
Gentile’s Italian academic education and subsequent American creative influences provide many layers in his work; the mixed stylistic and expressive qualities of this Italian and American artist are revealed in the sharpened use of warm and expressive color, evocative of the Mediterranean region.
