About Antonio Sorchini
"I create because of my strong desire to engage an audience to participate with me in the creative process."
A humble soul with 40+ years of painting under his belt, Sorcini is a dynamic figure.
A once-renegade champion of social injustice that found national acclaim with the success of his large-scale, non-objective, contemporary paintings; his new figurative approach [the result of an almost fatal battle with cancer] gets back to the basics of traditional painting with intimate scenes of children at play that retain his signature use of bold color and alluring composition that masterfully draws the viewer into his optimistic world.
Recently interviewed he said, "I'm an observer who interprets the world in terms of my developed aesthetics and my life experiences. I don't paint the subject in front of me. I paint its inner reflection."
