Patrick Antonelle's
Poetry In Paint
by Deborah Cohen

The landscapes of Pennsylvania, the shores of Long Island, and passages in Central Park, all have yielded to the romanticism of Patrick Antonelle's brush. In a style of Pointillism-Impressionism, guided by his teachers -"Life and Nature"-Antonelle creates images of compelling poetic grandeur.

The Plaza-Winter II elevates a natural scene to a peaceful reverie. A paradoxical expression of harmony between the angular forms of the hotel and the soft, translucent veil of snowflakes and rounded shapes of the trees can only be successfully created by an artist with great sensitivity and deft mastery of his art. Here, Architecture and Nature coexist in a single unified whole. The tiny flakes of snow embrace the scene in an evanescent vision of tranquility.

All seasons are captured by Antonelle and the poignant nostalgic moments are brought to life. This native New Yorker, much like Childe Hassam, instills a sense of pride and optimism for viewers to savor. He reminds us that simple beauty is so frequently overlooked.

In Younger Than Springtime, a cherry blossom nearly fills the entire canvas in a bountiful expression of joy. The bright pink blossoms contrast dramatically against the rich green carpet upon which it stands so majestically.

A new painting - Spring Rain, which was recently on view in Antonelle's one man show at Gallery 84 - draws the viewer into Central Park to feel the gentle mist and smell the sweetness of the rain cleansing the new life that blossoms. Antonelle reminds us of the precious and wondrous moments we often forget. His paintings preserve the power and beauty in Nature.

His work has increasingly aroused the interest of both the private and the corporate collector, such, as the Sculleys of Apple Computer, Liza Minnelli, ~ Frank Sinatra, Mr. and Mrs. Donald Trump, Citicorp, and Crossland Savings Bank, to name a few. Antonelle's work is also available in limited edition prints.
